Forget Black Friday, this beautiful Sale church is hosting a hyper-local Christmas market


Beautiful Sale church St. Paul’s is hosting The Sale Arts Trail’s annual Christmas market this weekend.

Now in its sixth year, the arts event will showcase work by 35 local Manchester makers and artists. And everything on display will be available to buy, giving you the chance to get their hands on a truly unique and special gift.

Expect to see beautiful pieces from local jewellers, artists, glassmakers, ceramicists, textile artists, printers, bookbinders, painters, illustrators, metalworkers, wood crafters, photographers and more on the day.

Popular Sale cafe Charley’s Corner will be serving a selection of festive food and drinks from a converted food van outside.

Organisers Sophie Nixon and Jo Lavelle said: “We’re delighted to be back at the stunning St Paul’s Church again this year.

“It’s great having the opportunity to be able to organise an event like this indoors which means that no matter what the weather is like, people can walk around at their leisure and stay warm and dry.

“And, of course it’s the perfect place to shop and support small businesses.”

Sale Metrolink station is just a five minute walk away and there’s free on-site parking available outside the church.

St Paul’s Church, 15 Springfield Rd, M33 7YA. Saturday 30th November, 10am to 5pm. Free.
