The annual Victorian Christmas Market at Bradford Industrial Museum is set to take place once again on Saturday, November 25, and Sunday, November 26.
During the event, the museum, managed by Bradford Council, will be magically transformed into a Victorian Christmas wonderland, with stalls both indoors and outdoors offering a delightful array of items to kickstart your Christmas shopping.
A variety of food vendors will be present, tempting visitors with tasty treats, including roast chestnuts, allowing people to enjoy the festive atmosphere throughout the day.
This year, there will be a £2 entry fee for adults, while children can enter for free.
Attendees will have the opportunity to encounter Scrooge and listen to his tales of miserliness. The town crier will share information about upcoming attractions, and Victorian chimney sweep stilt walkers will add a spectacular touch. Visitors can also greet the charming alpacas.
To complete the Christmas experience, a brass band will fill the air with festive tunes, and, of course, there will be an opportunity to meet Santa. To streamline the process and avoid children waiting in line, a new system has been implemented. Tickets to see Father Christmas can be pre-purchased at the museum’s reception desk for just £6 per child, and they include a delightful gift.
This highly anticipated Christmas event, a favourite in the district, will take place from 10 am to 4 pm on both Saturday, November 25, and Sunday, November 26.
Councillor Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Healthy People and Places, said: “Our Victorian Christmas Market at Bradford Industrial Museum is always a very popular event in the run-up to Christmas. There is always plenty to see and do and is a great place to pick up early Christmas presents and to get into the Christmas spirit.”
