Winter Social is bringing an alternative Christmas market to Bullring

Read this in: 1 minute

Escape the madness of the Frankfurt Market, and head to Winter Social, the new festive market which is launching Selfridges, The Balcony.

Winter Social, which runs from December 1 – 24 December 2016 from Tuesday to Sunday, midday to 9pm (closed on Mondays), will include local food and drink as well as DJs who will ensure shoppers and visitors get social during the festive season.

The event celebrates local talent and will showcase a wide variety of food and drinks by vendors from Birmingham and the Black Country. Food will range from award-winning British street food from Baked in Brick, and delights from The Middle Feast, to classic warm mince pies, hearty casseroles, and hot chestnuts.

Drinks will include good old English ales (including local favourite Peaky Blinder), quality lagers, warm cider, mulled wine, cocktails, choctails, coffee and decadent hot chocolates. Local DJs from the likes of Leftfoot, Magic Door and The Lord Clifden will provide funk, soul, house and indie music, adding an element of “cool” and “alternative” to any shopping experience.

Dean Brennan, from events company Behind the Curtain, and Magic Door, said:

Winter Social is perfect for those who wouldn’t normally come into town during the festive season; for those who want to support the myriad of cultures and counter cultures that Birmingham nurtures!
