The Christmas lights are up, certain coffee purveyors have switched to red cups and you can’t move in town for sparkly party dresses and stripy stockings. And it’s set to get busier and more festive this week with the opening of York’s annual St Nicholas Fayre. The Fayre will see markets pop up in Parliament Street, St Sampsons Square and Coppergate, with stallholders selling a range of gifts, crafts and lovely local things to eat and drink.
Along the road and under cover, the Guildhall will host ‘Made in Yorkshire’, where crafters and artists from God’s Own County will showcase their wares. Choose from ceramics, glassware, jewellery and much more (5th November to 11th December, 10am to 5pm). At Barley Hall, medieval traders be selling unique, handcrafted gifts and you can enjoy a warm winter drink (or wine or ale) at the tavern bar (10am to 5pm daily, 28th November to 1st December, £2 adults/£1 children, £5 family of four).
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas….
