Christmas Markets


I cannot BELIEVE it’s taken me 30 years to visit a Christmas market!! I am SUCH a Christmas freak too.. so this year I made up for it by visiting 3! Manchester was first and possibly my favourite of the bunch for variety, then York which was just CRAZY busy and a little too enclosed for my liking.. also not enough foodie stalls. Lastly Emma and I stopped by the market at Leicester Square after The Nutcracker last Saturday – not sure the ballet is for me.. found it difficult to follow but think I will try one more before I concede so any recommendations are welcome – and it was the nicest to walk because although it was busy there was more room between the stalls, it was CARPETED (swish!) and small enough to see it all in not much time. Of all of the markets I love the wooden ornaments and the mini pancakes (there’s a German name but I forget it) with powdered sugar most of all and I will absolutely be back to Manchester with the whole family next year, opening weekend!

    RE: Ballet – I wasn’t a fan either until I saw Matthew Bourne’s version – look for something by him and I’d be interested to hear what you thought, he’s a little more ‘raw’. I saw a picture of Dorian Grey, didn’t know the story before hand but could follow it and it was very expressive 🙂

      I am definitely not giving up yet as I love the music/dancing but a feature length production was a bit much when I wasn’t following the story lol
