There are wonderful Festivals throughout the year and especially so throughout the Autumn/Winter Months.  Here are some for consideration:

Manchester Christmas Markets – for five magical weeks – from the 10th-21st December 2016.  Please go to for further details.

Richmond (Yorkshire) Medieval Christmas Weekend – Watch falconry displays and discover on how these birds were used by the Nobles for seasonal tables during the festive season.  Meet the historical traders and shop for medieval wares, crafts and treats.  Please go to
