TELFORD’S CHRISTMAS MARKET IS BACK TO CELEBRATE TELFORD’S 50TH YEAR

Telford European Christmas Market is back for its third year in Southwater!

To mark the town’s 50th birthday and celebrate the market’s opening weekend,  there’ll be some added festive atmosphere around Southwater Lake with fountains, fire and floating lanterns from 29 November – 1 December.

This year will see all the traditional elements of a Christmas market with wooden chalets decked with garlands and lights, festive gifts and food to tickle your taste buds.


There will be a small funfair for the young and the young at heart.

This year sees a traditional carousel added to the mix along with other fairground attractions. In addition to this there will be performances from local choirs and acoustic bands for that real Christmas atmosphere throughout the event.


For that real authentic European market feel, there will be an Alpine-style bar as well as the obligatory sausages cooked on an open fire and of course the opportunity to enjoy a sip of gluhwein.


Come along and warm up your vocals at the Christmas Sing-a-long on Friday 7 December.

The main sing song will take place 6pm - 6:30pm but there will be a variety of entertainment throughout the day.
