18 October 2021

With just under a month to go until Christmas comes to the grounds of Birmingham Cathedral, Colmore BID has revealed the 50 vendors who will be bringing the festive cheer and selling their wares at Christmas in Cathedral Square.

Delivered in partnership with Birmingham City Council, Birmingham Cathedral and Danter Attractions Limited, Christmas in Cathedral Square will take place in the grounds of Birmingham Cathedral between 17 November-19 December 2021, offering a mixture of craft, gift and food and drink stalls. The market will provide a platform for local businesses, producers and craftspeople to showcase their goods in the run up to Christmas, complimenting other established festive events in the city centre.

Some of the District’s finest food and drink venues will be taking up residency in the Christmas chalets, including, Hookways, Java Roastery and Purecraft Bar & Kitchen. They will be joined by other vendors from across the city and region including, Loki Wine, Pineapple Club, Dirty Dogs and Fries, Donut Shack, Mumbai Grill and Fruit Dippers.

If you’re looking to start your Christmas shopping or you’ve been super organised and just need to grab those last few presents, the market will also have an array of gift and craft stalls. Beyond Skin, Burning Barn Rum, Cielo Pottery, Funny Brummie Pictures, Glassy Silver, IKIGAI, Indian Gypsy, Let It Bee and Woody Things are just a handful of crafter-makers who will be at Christmas in Cathedral Square.

Michele Wilby, CEO of Colmore BID said: “The countdown is truly on for Christmas and while some may say it’s still too early to be talking about it, we’re incredibly excited about the city’s offering this year. Christmas in Cathedral Square is a new concept for us and one we’re pleased to be bringing to the grounds of Birmingham Cathedral. It’s great to have some of the city’s venues joining us in the festive chalets, as well as other independent businesses from across the region.

“We have worked with partners and other city centre attractions to build upon Birmingham’s already fantastic offering – this isn’t about competition, it’s about collaboration and ensuring the city attracts people from the across the county, not only to visit our stalls, but also our fantastic hospitality venues, shops and hotels. 2021 will be a Christmas to remember – but this year for all the right reasons”.

Leader of Birmingham City Council Cllr Ian Ward said: “Christmas in Cathedral Square is a welcome addition to Birmingham’s festive offering and provides another great reason to visit our city this Christmas. We have so much to offer visitors and this new attraction will showcase local businesses, producers, craftspeople alongside a number of our excellent food and drink venues.”

Christmas in Cathedral Square opens on 17 November with the official switch-on of the District’s Christmas lights. More details about this event will be released over the coming weeks.
