This weekend the much-loved North Shields Christmas Market is back in town.

There will be a whopping 70 stalls at the market, offering a wide variety of goods.

If you still haven't sorted your Christmas cards yet, you can swing by to pick some up and support local businesses.

There will, of course, be gift stalls as well as food and drink huts to keep you fuelled.

That means German sausage, hog roast churros, waffles, Indian street food, fresh coffee, mulled wine and some festive gin.

When not shopping you can take in some live music with local choirs, school groups and soloists taking to the bandstand to blast out some Christmas carols.

Other entertainment across the weekend will include a small fairground for children and alpacas.

You can head down to the North Shields Christmas Market from 10 am on Saturday, December 11.

The market will close at 5 pm on Saturday and then open again from 10 am until 4 pm on Sunday, December 12.

Thousands of shoppers are expected to attend over the weekend to support local traders after another tricky year.

The council are also making all parking in car parks operated by them free to support the event.

Cllr Davey Drummond, Chair of North Tyneside Council, said: “The market is a wonderful event for all the family and visitors come from far and wide so it is a fantastic opportunity to get into the Christmas spirit.”
