The Christmas market has triumphantly returned to the city.
Brighton’s Christmas Market at St Peter’s Plaza in York Place is back for a second year.
David Hill, Founder and CEO of E3 Events, the company that runs the market, was on hand today to open the event to the public.
He said: “We are delighted to be back for another year of Brighton Christmas Festival.”
Councilor Lizzie Dean, Mayor of Brighton and Hove, was there to cut the ribbon.
She said: “It’s wonderful to welcome all these traders to this Christmas market.
“It’s now just 37 days until Christmas, so what better time to start Christmas shopping and get involved in the celebrations.”
The market has stalls selling Christmas gifts ranging from hats and scarves to cheese and chocolate.
The stands are housed in traditional European-style chalets, which Hill says are “really authentic”.
In addition to the shopping stalls, there are a number of food and drink stalls.
Visitors can also enjoy a virtual reality sleigh ride and an après ski lodge bar with mulled wine and German craft beers.
There is also a large wheel next to the Christmas Chalets where riders can enjoy the city views.
The market opened at 1.30pm today and is open every day until Christmas Eve.
Stalls selling gifts are open Monday to Thursday from 12:00 to 21:00 and Friday to Sunday from 10:00 to 22:00.
The food outlets in the market are open daily until 11:00 p.m.
