Derry’s Christmas Market is set for a month-long return and a major upgrade this winter with the council making a call-out for dozens for wooden chalets.
The market will run from November 21st to December 21st.
A new tender document is seeking quotations from suppliers for between 40 to 50 wooden chalets, ranging in type from ‘barn door’ and ‘walk-in’ to ‘counter top’ and ‘circular/ continental’ chalets.
A spokeswoman for Derry City Council however said yesterday that they had yet to decide whether it would remain at Guildhall Square or move to a new location.
She said: “Council is committed to maximising the city’s reputation as a must-visit retail and tourism destination for visitors and locals in the period up until Christmas. In collaboration with its stakeholders, Council are currently reviewing a number of options in relation to a proposed Christmas Market. Among the options under consideration are location, scale and offer with the view to enhancing the overall event of which a market would form an integral element.”
