Two main observations, drink prices had been jacked up and the actual Christmas gifts (rather than food and drink) had been downsized, I could only find one stall across all markets selling Stollen for example!

Ha! I found three, in At Annes Sq. on Thurs, selling at half price for £5 each (looked mass produced), the main Stollen/cake stall in Albert Sq, selling for a tenner but I bought three for £15 on the german Chocolate Santa stall in Albert Sq.
Bargain!

Wernt any in Albert square a couple of weeks ago though they do rotate stall holders slightly.

This will give the city centre a massive boast.

September, though.

The Manchester Christmas Markets are set to open in September this year to cash in on the ‘huge demand’ from visitors.

The expanded market - which will now offer bratwurst, mulled wine and hand carved treats for FOUR MONTHS instead of the usual six weeks - will also see 100 new stalls added on a new pitch, all the way up Oxford Road.

I really wish one of those bratwurst stands that operate at the Xmas markets would set up shop someplace in town so I could get big tasty sausage based fast food all year round. Either that or Herman Ze German open up a location in Manchester...

Damn I'd love some currywurst right about now but you just can't get it in Manchester in April...
