That’s all folks! Telford European Christmas Market leaves tomorrow evening.

That’s all folks! Telford European Christmas Market leaves tomorrow evening.

The 23rd is the last day for the market at Southwater, although the Fair and the Bar in the Tent will remain for a little longer.

What are your thoughts on the Christmas Market? A welcome attraction to Telford Centre this time of year?

    Maybe cut down the rental cost so the sellers can knock their prices down a bit…. not as good as previous years

    Prefer a relaxing stroll through Southwater rather than the market crowds and mess

    Was half the size of last year as stalls were back to back the year before and going up towards tgi, mostly food stalls there. Was disappointed but wouldn’t like to lose it just needs to attract a wider variety in what’s being sold. If they dropped the rent ablt they might attract better stalls

    The 3 times I was up there, 1 it was closed and the other 2 it may as well of been. How much food was wasted by the stall with the huge chunks of meat he had sitting over the heat?
    Overpriced for your average family

    Chester is a small market but great variety of quality AND reasonable priced ‘gift’ stalls eg felt decorations and gifts etc etc. Surely there are people with these skills in the area?? There’s too many food stalls, especially as being so close to the town centre.

    Disappointed that most stalls seem to be food rather than European decorations/gifts

    Oddly, for a “European” market most traders seem to have gone for the uniquely British model of high prices and low trade rather than lower prices and many more customers.
    Sorry, but I don’t care how brilliant your barbecue is, I’m NOT going to pay £25 for a mixed grill I have to eat standing outside in the rain !
    I also wonder how the many food and drink outlets paying rent and rates in Southwater felt about the major influx of competition at this time of year ?
