St Ann's Square
St Ann's Square, complete with stalls for the annual Christmas Market. Two street musicians are performing in font of the Boer War Memorial which was erected in 1907.

The Christmas markets first arrived in Manchester in 1998, when the council of Frankfurt hosted a small traditional German market of just 17 stalls in St Annís Square.

Now an annual event, the 2011 Christmas Market has an array of over 200 stalls spread across Albert Square, Brazenose Street, King Street, St Ann's Square, New Cathedral Street, Exchange Square and Piccadilly operating from 17th November to 21st December.
