Manchester Christmas Markets – Probably the Best Xmas Markets in the UK

When do the 2015 Manchester Christmas Markets start? Excited!

We’re already asking ‘when do the 2015 Manchester Christmas Markets start?’

What’s the best thing about Christmas in Manchester? For many people it’s the markets which have made the city the number one Christmas destination in the UK.

The markets make the city centre a special place to be in the run up to the big day. This year they open on Saturday 14 November (just a month from today) and run until Monday 21 December, so be prepared for five weeks of festive shopping with the smells of bratwurst, mulled wine, cinnamon and pancakes filling the air

The locations for this year will be as follows- Albert Square, Brazennose Street, King Street, St. Ann’s Square, Exchange Street, Market Street, New Cathedral Street, Exchange Square, Corn Exchange, Cathedral Gardens

And by the way, if you’d like to help out at the markets, the council is looking for yuletide- loving volunteer elves to direct visitors around the award winning attraction at weekends and spread some Christmas cheer. The elf volunteers will be located across the 10 Christmas Market sites, giving help and advice to shoppers and visitors and being on hand to answer any general questions.

Each volunteer elf will receive one of the coveted, limited edition, Manchester Christmas Market mugs – and two shining stars of the Manchester elf volunteers will also be invited for tea with the Lord Mayor.

All volunteers will attend a briefing session prior to volunteering.
