Final preparations are underway in uphill Lincoln in preparation for the return on Lincoln Christmas Market on December 4-7.

Over 200 stalls are being prepared before the opening of the market at 12.30pm on Thursday, December 4, known as locals’ day. An official opening will also be held at 5.30pm outside Lincoln Cathedral.

The four-day market will be split into several zones selling similar items, to make it easier to find the perfect gift and treat.

A gift marquee can be found in Westgate and by the big wheel, while those looking for food should go to St Paul’s Food Court or the Christmas Pantry.

There will be a range of children’s toys on offer, and crafts such as soap and candles, jewellery, pottery and ironwork.

Lincoln’s Christmas Market is the oldest in the UK, and attracts over 250,000 visitors a year, bringing £10 million to the local economy.
