Christmas Markets in Douglas this weekend

Local fayre on offer

Douglas town centre is set to be re-imagined as a Christmas market this weekend, when local producers descend upon the capital.

Over 50 stalls boasting food, crafts and other goods from local businesses will be on show at the event, which has been organised jointly by the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture and Douglas Town Centre Management.

The festive gathering will take place from 9:30am until 5pm.

It was due to take place on the street of the town centre, but many stalls will now be in the Strand Shopping Centre, because of the poor weather.

Town Centre Manager Oliver Cheshire says the event will boost business in the capital:
