Council Leader Sir Albert Bore has spoken ahead of the opening of this year’s Frankfurt Christmas Market in the city centre later today (November 15) after inspecting stalls this morning.

The market, which began in 2001, has grown over the years and will have 190 stalls in 2012. Of these the Birmingham Frankfurt Market will have 99 stalls, while Birmingham’s Christmas Craft Market will have 91 stalls.

Figures from previous years show the market has an associated spend of £90million and, on average, attracts three million visitors every year.

Both markets will be open daily from 10am-9pm until December 22.
