Leeds Christmas Market (also known as Leeds Christkindelmarkt) is set to return for 2022, and locals will be beyond chuffed since it’ll be the first time its run in its usual capacity since Coronavirus hit back in 2020.
Making a glittering comeback this November for its 20th anniversary, Leeds folk will be able to get right into the Christmas spirit from November 5th, right up until the 18th December.
Taking over Millennium Square in the city centre, the event will bring the popular German tradition to Yorkshire, packed out with festive-themed stalls, fairground rides and even an Alpine-themed bar.
For those who know and love the market already, you’ll be pleased to hear that the Alp Chalet, Kuh Stall and Ski Hutte bar will all be returning.
If that wasn’t enough already, the market will boast a number of family-friendly events, too, including kid’s shows on Sunday mornings, sing-a-longs, characters wondering around to interact with and face painting.
The activities will be accompanied by the Christkindelmarkt’s beloved Santa’s Breakfast, which will take place every Saturday and Sunday. There, kids can meet Santa Claus himself while tucking into a buffet breakfast, while enjoying the crafts available.
It’s a unique addition to the markets, with many mostly catering to adults only.
Leeds Christmas Markets will be open daily, but stay tuned right here for any further news.
York Christmas Market will also return this year after a fantastic 2021 run, with tons of incredible stalls lining up Parliament Street, the return of Thor’s Tipi (a huge tipi where guests can enjoy mulled wine and street food) and plenty of festive cheer around the historic city.
