The long-standing Christkindelmarkt in Leeds will open its doors once again for Christmas 2019.

An annual event, the German-style market hosts over 40 traditionally decorated chalets all selling festive treats, gifts and hot food and drink.

It's not just the stalls either, as organisers have once again confirmed the ever-popular Christmas carousel will make a return to the event, along with a number of other themed children's rides.

The centrepiece Alp Chalet Bavarian style restaurant will also make a welcome appearance, as will the alpine Kuh Stall and the Ski Hutte bar, all offering authentic German food and drink.

There will also be several events over the course of the run, including live festive entertainment, weekly children's activities and a Santa's breakfast.

In respect for Remembrance Day commemorations, the market will not open until 12pm on Sunday 10th November.
