Manchester: Markets & Concert

It’s a day out in Manchester with my good friend Gina. We are headed to Enrique Iglesia concert Sex & Love and a side trip to the Christmas Market.

We went straight to the Christmas Market near the Victoria Train station. The markets are scattered around the city, they are literally everywhere. It’s not only a German but theres French, Greek, and Italian stalls, a good choice of everything. We followed the map market trails.

Food stalls ranging from wraps, waffles, sweet treats and of course the Bratwurst and more of German beers, mulled wines and hot chocolate with baileys (wink wink). Stalls of souvenir, Christmas decors and more of gift ideas. And some rides for the kids.

Hotchocobaileys anyone?

After sometime roaming around to the different stalls its about time to head off to the Fones4U Arena for Enrique Iglesia concert Sex & Love, the highlights of my night. Demi Lobato is the guest performer for the night. She was good and ofcourse she sang the theme song of Frozen ” Let it go”. After an hour performance of Demi, the much awaited man of the night appeared with loud roaring, screaming and shouting for his name, the whole arena comes to life.

And a good time follows with dancing to Bailando and singing along to Hero. What a spectacular night. Thanks for a wonderful night Gina Moore my concert buddy.

  1. Awesome!! We are from Manchester and look forward to the markets coming every year, they have grown and grown a lot and it’s cool to see someone else who loves them! It’s always a great atmosphere, great food and get you in the Christmas spirit! Just wish it wasn’t so cold in Manchester!!

  2. You were in Manchester? I went to the Christmas Markets here myself just before Christmas. I find that they’ve been becoming more and more standardised across the UK in recent years which is a shame, but at least they made more of an effort than my home town of Liverpool did this year! (It’s almost as if they didn’t bother!)
