Christmas Market in Liverpool
Liverpool’s Christmas Market is back for 2022 and this year it’s bigger than ever, spit over two city centre locations. The markets will be located outside St George’s Hall and use St John’s Gardens and a second festive offering at the Pier Head. Both sites will have stalls selling local food, drink, gift items and local artisan products and have a number of family-friendly vintage fairground rides for guests of all ages to enjoy. There will also be performance spaces for choirs, carollers and school groups; the perfect entertainment for an afternoon of shopping. Don’t forget to pick up a mulled wine to keep yourself warm in the nippy winter air. The markets are open from 12th November until 23rd December and you don’t need tickets.
Liverpool ONE – Chavasse Park
Along with the new and improved Christmas Markets, Liverpool One has a brand-new Christmas experience this year. Chavasse Park will transform into a ski-inspired Alpine Village for all ages to enjoy. Opening on November 11th, the alpine village will include excellent food and drink stalls, wreath-making, independent traders and plenty of festive family fun. There will be games and events like karaoke, curling, shuffleboard, prosecco pong, and more. There is a party lodge you can book for you and your mates to enjoy a Christmas drink or families can join The Santa Club on Sundays in December to enjoy karaoke, free hot chocolate and colouring pads for the kids and a change to need the man in red himself. It promises to be a great day out for all visitors.
