Give Handmade this Christmas
Meet the makers and give handmade this Christmas with an inspiring trip to the Northern Quarter’s home of independent shopping.
Launching with a day of music and gin on the 23rd November and then open right up until Christmas Eve, our Victorian covered market is the perfect spot to escape from the crowds and enjoy a winter warmer in the cafe. Come and support local, independent makers this festive season and give handmade this Christmas.
