Christmas market’s global appeal

Liverpool’s Christmas market features top quality goods from throughout the world.

It features more than 60 craft and food stalls from across five continents and is offering treats from as far away as China and South Africa.

The Moroccan mini-village which has proved so popular in previous years makes a welcome return near to the Metquarter.

Now in its eighth year, the market, which is in Lord Street, Paradise Street, Church Street and Williamson Square, runs from 22 November to 22 December.

In Williamson Square, there is a welcome return for the BID’s Liverpool bandstand to entertain with a feast of free, festive entertainment from brass bands and choirs to orchestras plus much more while transforming the heart of the city centre into a European style ‘Christmas Village’, complete with a German Gluwein Bar and Bratwurst grill.

The market, run by Geraud Markets Liverpool, is open between 10am and 8pm from Monday to Saturday with Sunday trading between 11 am and 5pm.

Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, cabinet member for regeneration, said: “The market is always one of the highlights of Christmas for the city and with the addition of the village in Williamson Square it is going to be extra special this year.

“As well as being able to do your Christmas shopping we are also providing some great entertainment – we are hitting all the right notes this year.”
