I didn't like it at all last year. To loud and not "traditional" enough. But definitely much better this year. Lovely food stalls - the crepes are delicious! The ice rink is great too, even if, like me, you do just stand and watch. tchgrin

Took me ages to get here ! I am the same as Greenfinch on the main site.I haven't yet seen the Christmas market in Reading but will look out for it.I did not like it last year so, haven't bothered so far.

Yes, I thought that might be you Greenfinch.

It's definitely a bit better than last year. Not quite like the European one's, but it's getting there. tchsmile

We are obviously quite near neighbours ! You may be able to guess where I live from my user name.
