Birmingham’s famous Christmas Market is making an anticipated return in November 2021, bringing back festive cheer for its 21st year.

While Gloucestershire will be hosting plenty of its own festive markets – keep an eye on SoGlos for those official updates – as Birmingham’s Christmas Market attracts plenty of daytrippers from the county, it’s a good idea to start planning those shopping trips now.

Open for seven weeks, from Thursday 4 November and running until Thursday 23 December 2021, the merry Victoria Square market will be packed with German sausage, schnitzel and hot gluhwein.

Visitors can enjoy a selection of holiday food and drink, traditional toys, ornaments, and gifts – as well as the chance to see singing Santa perform!

What’s more, Birmingham’s ice rink and big wheel will be making a return to Centenary Square, running from Thursday 4 November 2021 until Sunday 9 January 2022 between 10am and 10pm.
