Give It a Go - Manchester Christmas Market

Manchester Christmas Market

The HUBS, Sheffield Hallam Students' Union | Sunday 12 December | 10am - 6pm (arrival in Sheffield 7:30pm)

You won't want to miss our final festive trip this season to Manchester Christmas Market! Manchester is pretty all year-round, but it especially shines during the holidays with one of the largest Christmas markets in the UK.

We have a coach to take you to and from the market and our team will be there to help you navigate hundreds of stalls filled with bars, food, crafts, live music and DJs. Plus, there's an ice skating rink to help you burn off all those mince pies you just ate. You will be able to enjoy all the markets and Manchester has to offer.

Bookings are £10 for a return ticket and hours of fun with our GIAG team to take you to and from Manchester. The trip will run with a 10am departure from The HUBS (Sheffield Hallam Students Union) 6 Paternoster Row. You will then be expected to be at the Manchester meeting point at the end of the day at 6.00pm, so we can travel back to Sheffield.

Ticket Information  

Your ticket is great value for money and includes all coach transport to and from Manchester. You're free to explore the markets and the city in your own time and at your own pace. Our Give it a Go team will be there to help you if you need it but you will but you will be in charge of your own itinerary whilst in Manchester.

Want to bring a non student? We know that some time people want to bring family and friends with them to enjoy our trips. We have a ticket available just for that, it’s slightly more expensive as our great GIAG deals are for Hallam Students only.
