INTERVIEW: Lancaster entertainment venue gets festive with its Christmas markets

Kanteena is getting festive with its Christmas Wintermarkts. Kay Maynard is one of the stallholders.

One of Lancaster's main entertainment venues is putting on Christmas markets this festive season and we've been finding out all about them.

Kanteena is hosting regular 'Wintermarkts' in the run-up to Christmas.

The festive markets take place on selected dates until December 28 at the warehouse venue on Brewery Lane.

Kanteena opened three years ago and has become a popular spot for live music, arts and community events.

Beyond Radio spoke to venue landlord Pablo Aguilar to find out more about the Wintermarkts and other events happening at Kanteena.

Pablo said: "We've had Christmas markets on every year but we just thought we'd try something different with the covered area outside, some more street food options, more supercharged hot drinks, stallholders for presents, and it's just a lovely cosy atmosphere really. It's been great so far.

"The next one is on Sunday (December 11) and then the next one after that will be Thursday 22nd, just before Christmas."

The Wintermarkts include festive drinks, street food, music, real trees, gifts and you can even meet Santa.

Opening times for Sunday's market are noon until 8pm. See the Kanteena website for more information.
