Times:            10am to 9pm daily

Location:        Victoria Square and New Street, Birmingham

While Christmas 2020 looked very different due to the pandemic, the city’s popular Frankfurt Christmas Market is set to return in November to bring some festive cheer back to the city centre in the run up to Christmas, with stalls selling a tempting array of food and drink, traditional toys, ornaments and gifts.

The market will open on Thursday 4 November 2021, bringing with it the festive aroma of hot gluhwein, schnitzel and spicy sausage, which will fill New Street and Victoria Square for seven weeks. 

With the planned public realm works around Victoria Square the market will have fewer stalls this year but will still bring lots of festive cheer.

Also this year’s event does come with the caveat of change or cancellation, should Covid restrictions come back into effect during the winter.

The big wheel and ice rink is also due return to Centenary Square and run from 4 November 2021 until 9 January 2021, between 10am and 10pm, except on Christmas Day. For more information and to book tickets visit
