Afflecks, everyone’s favourite bizarre bazaar, is branching out this winter with a pop-up market in the appropriately gothic setting of Manchester Town Hall. They have had a presence there for the past few Christmases, with great success. I guess they don’t like being outdoors with rest of the Xmas markets, as many of their customers are very much creatures of the night. The pop-up features all the cool stuff found at the main Afflecks store in the NQ: boutique market stalls with alternative clothing, hand-crafted jewellery, and retro confectionery. After a couple of mugs of Glühwein, even the most straight-laced person is sure to find something of interest, even it’s only a present for an alt-leaning niece.

Fri 14 Nov – Sun 21 Dec, Manchester Town Hall foyer, Albert Square, Manchester, M60 2LA, times vary, FREE,

Fri 14 Nov - Sun 21 Dec
