In 2019 our Christmas Market on Saturday, 7th December and the Christmas Shop during the following week were another huge success, enjoyed by all who came. In total £3,960 was raised for the Friends of St Mary’s Hospital, £810 more than the previous year.

Our centre was full to capacity and the Lancaster Hall and York Room were filled with German speciality cakes, biscuits and chocolates. As always, there was a large selection of Stollen, imported directly from Germany, many of which are simply not available from the usual shops. There was also a selection of presents and decorations, much of this produced by our members in the preceding months.

Our guests spent their time buying from the market, enjoyed traditional German cakes and food from our restaurant and relaxed in our lounge with a glass of Glühwein, prosecco or a traditional German Christmas beer.

Many local businesses and neighbours donated prizes for the popular tombola.

There were five choirs and other musicians performing throughout the afternoon and a children’s entertainer to keep the younger ones busy and happy. We even had our very own Father Christmas doing the rounds.

Owing to the current pandemic, for the first time in 59 years the German YMCA Christmas Market will sadly not go ahead this year.  However, we will look forward to our Christmas Market in 2021 all the more!

Our 2019 Christmas Market was generously supported by donations from:
BarBurrito Restaurant, Bernd Hildebrandt, Brakes, Colin Craven Jazz Concerts, Bizzarro Restaurant, Headmasters Hair Salon, Jim Bunbury, John Chapple, Laurents, Le Supermarche, Nuffield Health, Royal Lancaster Hotel, Taormina Restaurant, The Cleveland Arms Pub, The Flower Boutiqu,e The Leinster Arms Pub, The Mitre Pub, The Monkey Puzzle Pub, The Porchester, The Sausage Man, Tuk Din Restaurant, Twin Cut Hair Salon & many others.
