Festive market open

The Alnwick Garden’s first Christmas Market opened to the public at the weekend, featuring traders from across Europe and closer to home.

Hundreds of people paid a visit to the event, which runs daily until Christmas Eve and features seasonal food, hand-made gifts, crafts and more.

Market-goers can also experience the German corner, with a range of products from the country.

Offering fun for all the family, children can take a ride on the merry-go-round or pose for a photograph in the Snowglobe.

The festive attraction has been organised by She’s Gott It Events; the company behind the Edinburgh Christmas Market for many years

Entry to the market area, located just below the Treehouse, is free, with a voluntary donation of £1 to support the Garden’s charitable projects.
