I have been sent an update about events at Kirkgate Market over the next few weeks:

“I would like to bring to your attention that here at Kirkgate Market we currently have Santa in his grotto, each Saturday and Sunday up to Christmas Eve!  Tickets can be purchased from the Markets information Centre at any time and are a very reasonable £2.50 which includes a gift. 

Also, starting on Monday 12th December and running every day until Christmas Eve is our first ever indoor Yorkshire Christmas Market, featuring local producers with scrumptious food and crafts to make fabulous and unique Christmas gifts – or just to treat yourself, perhaps? 

Finally, a mention for our bespoke Panto, Santa and the Goblin Market, written for us and performed every Saturday to Christmas Eve by renowned theatre company, Alive & Kicking. 

I would love to see you here at Kirkgate Market, and if you are here do let me know so I can show you around the latest changes.   I would also be very grateful if you could let any schools, organisations or constituents in your Ward know that we have these great attractions for them this Christmas.”


Thank you very much for your help in promoting what’s on at the market, and Merry Christmas from the Markets Team.
