Birmingham Christmas Markets Trip

Sunday 10 December 2023, 9am - 7:45pm

Meeting Point: Student Union

Event Information

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Come and celebrate the festive season at Birmingham Christmas Market, where you’ll find an array of traders selling seasonal delights, crafts and unique items, which are perfect for those hunting for that special Christmas gift.

Located in the very heart of Birmingham City Centre, this is the largest authentic Christmas market outside of Germany & Austria. You can enjoy Pretzels, schnitzels, bratwursts, and roasted almonds, as you sip on gluhwein, weissbeer or comforting hot chocolate.

Highlights include the big wheel to take in views of the city and an ice rink to show off your skills! (Please note that at time of writing, June 2023, it is too early for either of these to have been confirmed).  

Whilst in Birmingham, why not explore more of what the UK’s second city has to offer. From exceptional shopping in the bullring, to exploring the Jewellery Quarter or getting some culture in the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, there’s something for everyone here!
