LIVERPOOL’S Christmas market opens today offering goods from throughout the world.
It features more than 60 craft and food stalls from across five continents.
The Moroccan mini- village makes a return near to the Metquarter.
Now in its eighth year, the market, which is in Lord Street, Paradise Street, Church Street and Williamson Square, runs until December 22.
In Williamson Square, there is a return for the BID’s Liverpool bandstand with entertainment from brass bands, choirs and orchestras while transforming the city centre into a “Christmas Village”, with a German Gluwein Bar and Bratwurst grill.
The market is open between 10am and 8pm from Monday to Saturday and Sunday from 11 am-5pm. Cllr Malcolm Kennedy, cabinet member for regeneration, said: “The market is always one of the highlights of Christmas for the city and with the addition of the village in Williamson Square it is going to be extra special this year.”
