Love them, hate them or don’t really care – the cancellation of the Christmas Markets this year was big news in the city – and a major blow for many of the businesses that rely on the footfall and increased visitors to Manchester and the £££ that brings.
For many, the Christmas Markets are a big sign that Christmas has arrived, prompting them to get into the festive spirit, buy some new gloves from the shops and drink copious amounts of mulled wine with their mates.
What are we going to do without them this year?
Well, there’s always the Winter Markets over at Escape to Freight Island, as well as this; the CHRISTMAS MARKET DRINKS BOX from the market’s main boozer – The Old Windmill House.
They’ve teamed up with the Northern Wine & Beer Co, who have supplied the markets with the finest German Pils and delicious Glühwein since day one, to create a special box containing a 5 litre keg of Krombacher pilsner, a brewery-branded stein glass, and a litre of premium quality Gluhwein with a traditional ceramic mug.
Priced at £60, with £5 from each sale being donated to the charity FareShare, the box is available to buy from their online shop and includes free delivery. Just click the button below…
