THE MARVELLOUSLY festive Manchester Christmas markets are back for another year, so here are some festive photos to get you all in the mood.
For five weeks up until December 21, the markets will be home to a variety of stalls from tempting bratwursts and delicious roast pork, to mini Nutella pancakes and hot tasty waffles; there’s a lot on offer in the food department.
Nine million people attended last year, with two million paying a visit to the Albert square site alone.
So how will the undeniable success of the events last year be topped?
Well, some first time stalls are coming to bring more joy to the Christmas period.
After they delivered a massive order to Justin Bieber when he performed at Manchester Arena, the UK’s first gourmet cheese restaurant ‘Northern Soul’ will be selling their toasties at this festive fiesta.

I really must stop eating at the Christmas Markets – 3 times this week, it’s a bad habit. Northern Soul today though, so very tasty.
