After Christmas cancellations swept the nation as a result of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, Sheffield Christmas Market is set to return toFargate and Pinstone Street, Town Hall Square and Peace Gardens for 2021 with a bang, finally bringing the Christmas cheer back to the South Yorkshire city.
Confirmed to return this November 12th, the markets will be open daily right up until the end of December, with over 50 log cabins inhabiting local traders selling gifts, food, alcohol, baked treats, home decor, the return of the giant ferris wheel and so much more. We can’t wait to visit Sheffield Christmas Market this year 2021.
In addition to the vast array of wonderful traders – over 80% of which are Sheffield born and bred businesses – guests will be able to enjoy the Alpine Bar, the iconic Big Wheel – which Sheffield dwellers will know well already – as well as Santa’s Grotto for the kids, a traditional German sausage grill and tons of festive food experiences.
Starting the festive celebrations on Friday November 12th, visitors will be able to enjoy the markets 10am-6pm Sunday-Thursday, and 10am-8pm Fridays and Saturdays.
Sheffield and York mark the only major cities in the region running Christmas markets this year, with cities such as Leeds cancelling their celebrations for this year. Sheffield Christmas Market has become a huge fixture in the calendar in the city centre over recent years – brining more and more people into the city. It has grown from a handful of cabins into a magical Christmas experience of 50 festive market traders – with over 80% of them are local to Sheffield.
The cancellations come as many councils still face uncertainty as a result of the pandemic, opting to avoid all risk by not hosting their usual Christmas spectacles. Visit the website here to find out more.
