Edge Meet And Greet
Up close with the Birmingham's Frankfurt Christmas Market stall holders
The door to Christmas is well and truly open now with the opening of Birmingham's Frankfurt Christmas Market well under way. We head over to Birmingham's Frankfurt-inspired seasonal shopping attraction to meet some of the people that make it all happen.
First stop was the carousel run by Mrs Emily Wilson, owner of Bob Wilsons Funfairs. Emily who's been running fairground rides for over 60 years says her family business has been coming to Birmingham Christmas Markets for as long as she can remember. When the carousel made it's first appearance in Birmingham there were only five stalls in total. "The atmosphere has always been great, there is a real burning of needs," she says. Bob Wilsons Fairs also own the Ice Rink and Big Wheel located in Centenary Square which are in town until the 10th January 2016.
