The UK’s biggest outdoor fully-heated market is coming to Freight Island in Manchester this winter.

Winter Island promises to bring all the festive cheer to the North West, with a whole host of new market traders and stalls.

From November 5, the expansive outside space will be transformed into a winter wonderland full of Christmas workshops, karaoke, DJs and live music.

There will be a 45-ft Christmas tree, gospel choirs and a firework display on Bonfire Night to kick off the festivities.

Throughout the festive season hog roasts, bratwurst and boozy hot drinks are on the menu to get you into the real Christmas spirit.

Every Tuesday The Comedy Store will host an evening at Freight Island which promises to bring you fun and laughter for the whole night.

Winter Island is also available for private hire and Christmas parties, with food and drinks packages available.

Freight Island is conveniently located at Mayfield Depot, next to Manchester Piccadilly train station and has plenty of public transport links. 

Free bookings for the Winter Island are open now, just head to the website and select an outdoor table from November 5 – December 31.
