14th November to 21st December 2014
If stressing in overcrowded shopping centres, lugging bags like a pack-horse, tripping over buggies and fighting over the last box of Christmas crackers sounds like a big Christmas nightmare, why not try a shopping trip with a difference.
Christmas markets are becoming increasingly popular throughout the UK, inspired by those in Germany and Eastern Europe. Traders from all over the continent come to sell their wonderful wares, from tasty treats to beautiful arts and crafts including jewellery, hats & gloves, candles and ornaments, and unusual toys. The markets are not just an opportunity to shop, but also to get into the Christmas spirit: take an evening trip, wrapped up in your winter woollies and get some mulled wine.
This year Glasgow welcomes back the popular Christmas Market to Argyle St, right in the city centre. Enjoy wood-crafted cabins, a beautiful Christmas tree, traditional music and carols, or simply sit back and relax with a glass of mulled wine, some tasty goulash or continental sweets.
As the market grows in popularity each year, professional traders from all over the world are coming to Glasgow, vendors as far afield as Ecuador, Russia and one special visitor all the way from Lapland.
