The annual event, which is usually held at Victoria Square and New Street, is scheduled to take place between November 5 and December 23.

However the event's organising body, Frankfurt Christmas Market Birmingham, has warned this may be subject to change due to Covid-19.

An event spokesman said: "Event information may change due to coronavirus (Covid-19). Please check details and guidance prior to visiting."

Each year the festival, also known as the German Market, has more than 80 stalls selling a range of gifts from food to alcoholic beverages, craft items and other novelties.
