WHAT’S ON AT LEEDS MARKETS THIS CHRISTMAS
The Market has long been a place for shopping, eating and drinking. But as of recently, it has also become a major social destination too. With some great events lined up over Christmas, what more could you ask for?
With a 10x10m pavilion stage, an eight metre LED screen, bench tables, free Wi-Fi and a perimeter lined with street food vendors, the new area is the perfect place for people to try some new cuisine, meet friends and watch live entertainment. This Christmas, they’ve got lots of brilliant activities and events for you to enjoy there!
They will host a Christmas Market from 18th November to the 16th December, a special Christmas themed Vintage Market on the 2nd December, a Christmas Record & Book Fair and a Teenage Market on the 9th and have performances from various choirs and brass bands through the month.
We’ve also rounded up some more of the great events they’ll be hosting! You can find Leeds Markets at 28-34 George Street, LS2 7HY. You can visit them online at leedsmarkets. co.uk and you can follow them on Twitter @ LeedsMarkets and on Facebook: Leeds Markets
LETTERS TO SANTA CLAUS 18TH NOVEMBER – 16TH DECEMBER
A CHRISTMAS CAROL 27TH NOVEMBER – 2ND DECEMBER
Children can write a letter and Christmas wish list to Santa which can be posted in one of our Santa Post Boxes within the information centre. Once your letter is received, Santa Claus will then send a letter in the post wishing them a Happy Christmas and thanking them for their letter and Christmas List.
Front Room Productions presents an original, promenade adaptation of Charles Dickens’ definitive yuletide story A Christmas Carol. With live musical accompaniment, the production will guide audiences around Leeds Kirkgate Market, following Scrooge on his path to redemption.
SANTA’S GROTTO 2ND,9TH, 16TH & 23RD DECEMBER
‘TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS 2ND,9TH, 16TH & 23RD DECEMBER
Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a trip to see Santa Claus and receive a gift from him in the event space inside Leeds Markets! Let’s be honest, there’s no way the kids aren’t going to love visiting Santa in his lovely grotto in Leeds.
This light-hearted comic tale will be energetically brought to life by Santa and his helpers. With added music and slapstick routines, Front Room Productions will fill Leeds Markets with festive cheer in the exciting run up to Christmas.
