Due to the ongoing situation surrounding Covid-19 (Coronavirus) this year the Liverpool Christmas Market is cancelled.
Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Member for culture, tourism and events, Councillor Wendy Simon, said “After weeks of consultation with our markets operator, they have made the understandable decision to cancel this year’s Christmas Markets at St George’s Hall plateau. The hugely complex challenges they face due to the ongoing health pandemic means it simply isn’t logistically or practically feasible for the event to go ahead. We look forward to working with them in 2021 on a significantly expanded Christmas market.
“The majority of shops and leisure venues remain open, so to provide some festive cheer for people spending time in the city centre, we have worked closely with partners to produce an extended lighting programme which will illuminate a trail from the Town Hall all the way up to Chinatown. And for the first time, Christmas lights will also line Hope Street, connecting our two majestic cathedrals and bringing some much-needed brightness and hope to the city.”
Liverpool's Christmas Market returns to St George's Plateau against the backdrop of the magnificent St George's Hall.
Mulled wine and other festive tipples will be served from the Teepee bar, the Ski Lodge with its karaoke cable cars, whilst the Windmill Bar and Gin Tin make a welcome return to leave you fuzzy with festive feels.
Foodies will love the festive treats on offer from the Bavarian Grill and Yorkshire Pudding Wrap stall to sweet treats such as waffles and pancakes.
There will be local arts, Christmas decorations and candles on sale, as well as a Ferris Wheel offering great views above the festoon lighting and other vintage fairground rides for the kids to enjoy.
The market will be open from Friday 15 November until Monday 23 December and we look forward to seeing you there!
