Last weekend saw the 21st St Nicholas Fayre bringing Christmas cheer to thousands of York residents and visitors across the four-day festival.

Cllr Sonja Crisp, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism, said: “”The Fayre was a massive success with traders reporting takings which, in some cases, exceeded previous years. It attracted over 200 coaches which were accommodated despite some flooding, and around 320,000 people in the city centre made it the busiest weekend of the year.”

“The merriment continues today (December 5) with the Festive Fayre, running until December 23. Visitors can get their Christmas shopping wrapped up with a range of stalls in Parliament Street offering gifts and Christmas treats, then relax in the Festive Inne which will be serving a range of seasonal offerings including winter Pimms.”

Visitors to the city centre can also park for free every Thursday up until Christmas from 6pm and all day Boxing Day at council car parks.
