Running over 6 weeks until Saturday 17 December, the Christkindelmarkt will once again boast a wide range of festive stalls and authentic German food & drink alongside the traditional Christmas Carousel and other themed children’s rides.


Now in its 20th year, the annual festive event will feature a mix of traditionally decorated wooden chalet stalls selling seasonal gifts, ornaments, toy decorations and German delicacies including gluhwein, bratwurst sausages, schnitzels and much more.


The seasonal showpiece will also provide cosy indoor retreats for all visitors alike at the muchloved Alp Chalet, Kuh Stall and Ski Hutte bar, offering a delicious choice of traditional German food and drink and authentic evening entertainment.

There will also be a daily evening programme of light entertainment as well as a weekly children’s show on Sunday mornings with face painting, balloon making and sing-alongs with appearances from our Winter Wonderland Princesses and other characters. The Radio Aire street team will also be on hand every weekend with glitter

stations and competitions to turn up the Christmas cheer.


The family-favourite Santa’s Breakfast will once again take place in the Bavarian-styled Alp every Saturday and Sunday morning.. Families will have a chance to enjoy a festive buffet breakfast with Father Christmas himself and take part in table arts and crafts organised by event partners Pop Up and Play. Tickets for Santa’s breakfast is by advance booking only and are available to purchase now from the City Centre Box Office in Leeds Town Hall by telephone on 0113 376 0318 and online at
