Wine, dine and shop at Leeds Corn Exchange as it announces plans for a Christmas Market
Independent traders are coming together to wine, dine, shop and get festive in Leeds in the run up to Christmas.
Leeds’s Rolling Social Events is gearing up to host a Christmas Market at Leeds Corn Exchange from next month and will be every weekend for five weeks.
Visitors can expect street food from around the world including burgers and bagels from New York, pies from Yorkshire, bratwurst from Berlin, bao buns from Asia, and plates from the Mediterranean, North Africa, and the Middle East all in the historic grade I listed building.
Rolling Social co-founder Samantha Fish said: “It’s great to be back working with the Corn Exchange. We love the beautiful building, its architecture, and its offer; packed with boutiques, it is celebratory of local independent business, which is exactly in-line with our ethos.”
The cherry on the cake is the market’s masterclasses that invite visitors to hang out with the experts and create their own spiced rums and botanical gins, discover hot cocktails in the ‘Not Mulled Wine Again’ class, and find out more about tequila.
Whilst Rolling Social provide the hospitality, the Corn Exchange will provide the Christmas shopping.
Centre manager Adam Warner said: "Leeds Corn Exchange is the home of Independents. With over 30 independent shops, cafes, boutiques and salons, visitors will be guaranteed to pick up some unique gifts. We’re really excited to welcome Rolling Social and the Christmas Market.”
The Christmas Market at Leeds Corn Exchange opens Friday November 20 at 5pm and runs every Friday through Sunday from 12 noon to 9.30pm until Sunday December 20.
It is free to enter and advanced booking is not necessary but the masterclasses are ticket only.
