Find Christmas cheer in England's wintry north
Once a heavily industrial place, Sheffield has experienced a revival over the past decade. Through extensive development efforts the city has been transformed into a centre of artistic, musical, and theatrical achievement. In fact, outside of London, Sheffield is home to one of the largest theatre complexes in England. This Saturday, 24 November the Crucible Theatre will host its third annual Christmas Craft Market. A widely popular event, this market draws vendors and visitors from across the UK.

The foyer of the theatre will be transformed into a Christmas wonderland with decorations, carols, and artists who travel from miles around to display their creations. In previous years, the market has included photography, handmade jewellry, one of a kind Christmas decorations (wreaths, nativities, stockings), paintings, and pottery. The great selection of items (as well as range of prices) ensure that you'll find a gift for any individual on your Christmas list.

Christmas foods, such as mince pies and mulled cider, are on offer throughout the day and choirs will be singing carols to really inspire you with a feeling of festivity.

With its revitalised city centre and many cultural attractions, Sheffield has become a great place for a day trip. With the cold winter already well-established in South Yorkshire, Sheffield's Crucible Craft Market is the perfect place to welcome the Christmas season.
