Two Weeks to go until the return of Telford’s Christmas Market
Telford & Wrekin Council is delighted to welcome back the ever popular Christmas Market which will once again be in Southwater during the lead up to Christmas.
Opening in less than two weeks on Thursday 21 November, the market promises to offer the same festive atmosphere as previous as well as a new addition. This year’s market will run until Monday 23 December.
This year will see all the traditional elements of a Christmas market with wooden chalets decked with garlands and lights, festive gifts, plenty of food and drink. A new experience will be coming to the market this year when you will be able to spend time in the warm with your favourite tipple at the bar inside a double hat tipi by Southwater Lake.
It wouldn’t be a Christmas market without the obligatory sausages for that real authentic market feel and of course the opportunity to enjoy a glass of gluhwein.
In addition, the big wheel will be returning early in December for the thrill seekers alongside some other family friendly rides to keep the young at heart entertained as well as performances from local choirs and acoustic bands.
New for 2019, come and share your Christmas wish with Father Christmas in his Grotto and selfie shack for that real Christmas atmosphere.
On Friday 6 December join the crowds for Carol’s @ Southwater where there will be performances from local choirs from 12pm with a mass singalong 6pm-7pm.
Councillor Rae Evans, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for Customer Services, Partnerships, Culture & Leisure said: “The Telford Christmas Market has been a great success over the past three years with thousands sampling the festive atmosphere in Southwater and we’re delighted that it’s back
“This year there are lots of new elements which will hopefully be welcomed by both old and new visitors to Southwater”.
The market will be open Sunday – Wednesday 10am-7pm and Thursday – Saturday 10am-9pm.
