Whats on in Birmingham / Re: xmas market

Hear Hear Judith I'm glad you latched on to the repetition , I did in their second year . I think with a lot of people its just and excuse
for a [censored] up and eating big bangers , so whats new . Once its over they can get back to spewing up and lying in the gutter

I noticed the repetition straightaway too.  As for your second point, there do seem to be a lot more food & drink stalls now than when it first started.  That's why I preferred the craft market part, more variety & less of the drinking stalls.  There was a great one last year that sold all sorts of cheeses & chutneys :)

Excellent event for a terrorist attack.

You've not seen the anti-terror gate things then?

Birmingham's one this year is smaller due to the Paradise building works & road works along Broad Street. I read somewhere that there's a reduced number of stalls in the German Market & no Craft Market this year.

Usually, we have the craft market, Birmingham Eye & Ice Rink outside the Rep, but that's a building site right now & the Eye & rink have been re-located to by Millennium Point & the craft market is having a year off.

I will take a wander through at some point as there is a stall that sells glassware that I buy a little glass animal from each year, but I probably won't buy much as the stalls are always repeats of previous years & you can't keep buying the same things for people.

I don't go any more after the second visit , I realised the same stuff was on sale at different stalls , the same as the first year


No I don't go either, its a rip off everything is so expensive.

Why not walk a little further, say down to the indoor market. I'm sure you would be able to buy much the same thing there instead of giving your money to a Romanian dressed up as a German?
