My Sunday Photo 6.12.15


If you can’t guess from the giant Zippy Santa, this is Manchester Christmas Markets. Santa sits on the Town Hall and oversees the goings on at the market, which when I visited mainly involved mulled wine and a very very good plate of pie and mash. 

I love the Christmas Market, I go every year with my best friend Bob who is also a freelance copywriter, it’s our annual “works Christmas do” and something I look forward to for months.

This was taken with my Nokia Lumia phone, a quick snap in between mulled wines, but it turned out pretty well. I like the way the bright lights are captured.

  1. My parents went to the Manchester markets last week and were very positive about it. We’ve stuck a little closer to home but there is something magical about any Christmas market, isn’t there> The kids love it.

  2. I love a good Christmas market too, we’ve just been to one, I think it will be my Country Kids next week. Yes please to the mulled wine, so festive.

  11. You see Zippy I see Homer. No visit to the Manchester Markets is complete without mulled wine and taking the obligatory picture of Santa/Zippy/Homer. We visited 2 weeks ago and had such a fantastic time, eating and drinking our way around the stalls x
