Mixed reactions to this year’s Christmas market

The Christmas Market was quite busy today with many visitors strolling around the Parliament Street area.

The stalls in St Sampson’s Square were popular as were the large numbers of buskers in the area.

Some regulars have commented that the Christmas market needs to spread out more.

There will be no stalls at the Judges Lodgings this year as a planning application covering their siting has been withdrawn by the building owners.

We think there is scope to expand the stalls onto areas like Duncombe Place. The area near the Minster would be ideal for a Christmas themed event.
