Sheffield’s Christmas markets open today
Sheffield’s Christmas markets open today (15 November), seeing the return of the Sleigh Bar, the big wheel and more than 50 traders to Fargate and the Peace Gardens.
From just a handful of log cabins to a sprawling fleet of over 50 traders, the Sheffield Christmas markets have grown hugely over the last few years. This year, the regular pit stops of The Sleigh Bar, the German Grill and Santa’s Grotto – which has this year relocated to the Peace Gardens, giving kids the chance to have a picture with the main fella himself, as well as a gift.
Some of the traders include Tipsy Towers’ Sheffield themed gifts and cards, O’Donnell Moonshine and local favourite the Sheffield Candle Company as well as the return of the big wheel to Sheffield city centre this year. Family tickets (two adults, two children) are available from £15, adults £5 and students/children £4 – there’s even an option for a luxury VIP booth for £50, if that’s your kinda thing…
The Sheffield Christmas markets are open 10am-6pm Sunday – Thursday and 10am-8pm Friday – Saturday. The markets close on Christmas Eve at 6pm.
