Two legends of Manchester’s most famous street will be this year’s VIP guests to open the Christmas Markets.

Corrie Legends Les Dennis and Connor McIntyre will be on hand to officially open this year’s Christmas Markets ahead of their appearance as the ugly sisters in the city’s panto production of Cinderella.

The Grand Opening of the Manchester Christmas will take place this Friday 9th November from 11am for the first 11.30am entrance.

The soap legends will be strategically placed at the Ice Village, Arctic Bar in Cathedral Gardens (head for the tented canopy and follow the signs.)

The Ice Village attraction is brand new to Manchester this year featuring 250 tonnes of hand carved ice sculptures, ice bars, Santa's grotto and an ice rink.

Just think of the decorations, and the wine, and of course...


Only 3 sleeps to wait!
