Over 120 market stalls will line the cobbled streets of Kelham Island for the 22nd annual Victorian Christmas Market later this month.

Huge crowds are expected at the event, which will run on November 29 and 30, with 14,000 visiting last year.

Rachel Walker, acting events and marketing manager at Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust said: “Our Victorian Christmas market continues to be one of the best loved in the region and we’re really looking forward to welcoming people back to enjoy even more delicious treats and colourful gift ideas for all the family.

“From sculptures by nationally-renowned scrap metal artist Jason Heppenstall, to hand-made scissors by Sheffield’s own Ernest Wright & Sons, there really is something for everyone.”

In addition to stalls there will be a traditional fairground, a live entertainment stage and a Santa’s Grotto complete with reindeer.

Escafeld Brass Band, City of Sheffield Pipe Band, Silver Spectrum Wind Band, Huddersfield Brass Band, Sheffield Teachers Choir, Vulcan Varieties and SHU band are due to perform.

There will also be a buskers’ corner.

Admission is £6 for adults.
