Young entrepreneurs are being challenged to provide the perfect Christmas gift ideas for Sheffield shoppers.

Pupils from schools and colleges across Sheffield are holding a pop-up market on The Moor in the city centre on Sunday, selling festive toys and treats from more than 15 stalls.

Part of The Big Challenge, a scheme to encourage teenagers to run their own business, it is just one of a number of Christmas attractions on The Moor this weekend.

There will also be carols and fairground rides all weekend, as well as a snow machine on Sunday afternoon.

On Sunday there will also be street dancers performing, singing Santas and a traditional organ player, as well as the market from 11am to 3pm.

The Christmas market will be held at the bottom of The Moor on Sunday between 11am and 3pm. There will be stalls from Silverdale School - including one selling wooden crafts, Meadowhead School – who will host stalls selling Christmas tree decorations, gift boxes, fashion accessories and stocking fillers, and the Brickart stall from Bradfield School will sell handmade cards, with another team offering unique smartphone and tablet cases. Meanwhile High Storrs School has arranged activities including cake decorating, gift-wrapping and salt dough creations.

There is still chance to win £500 to spend at shops on The Moor and in the new Moor Market, by answering a question on entry postcards which are available from shops on The Moor. Completed postcards can be dropped off in special boxes in TJ Hughes, Poundland, Sainsbury’s, Atkinsons, Blue Inc, Dorothy Perkins, Boots, The Christmas Shop, Superdrug, and BHS. All entrants must be 16 or over and the winner will be selected on Tuesday 17th December.

Plus three lucky children will be able to win a gift of their choice to the value of £25 in the Christmas Wish competition, and The Moor will donate a further £50 to charity as part of the competition. Christmas Wish postcards are available at shops on The Moor and should be dropped into the same boxes as the Win Christmas postcards by Thursday 19th December.
