Preparations are well under way for the 2012 Lincoln Christmas Market as the first stalls and rides are being set up for the four-day event.

The official opening takes place at 6:30pm on December 6, on the steps of Lincoln Cathedral in front of Exchequer Gate when the Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Karen Lee, declares the market open.

Boston Grammar School's lederhosen clad, German dance troupe, Schuhplattler Gruppe, will then kick-off a packed schedule of entertainment.

For the first time a stage will be set up at St Paul in the Bail to host a rolling programme of theatre, dance and music to suit all tastes.

Younger visitors have their own Kids Craft Tent hosted by Ruddocks of Lincoln just inside the Lawn complex where, for just £2, children aged 4-9 can relax and enjoy making Christmas crackers, cards or tree hangings.

A special collection of food stalls will represent the county within the Lincolnshire Larder area, with businesses such as the Stamford Cupcake Company and Lymn Bank Farm from Skegness.

Classic fairground rides are being constructed in Westgate with a big wheel present once again, offering panoramic views of Lincoln.

    "Cant see many one way signs on the photos so far." I now see that the one way signs are now in place. Which makes you a muppet. (Sound of drumstick against a cymbal)

    Listen to you lot! Bah Humbug or what? You were probably the same people who criticised the event when they cancelled it in 2010! They can't win! Try visiting the Xmas markets in towns like Grantham and Sleaford and you'll see how lucky you Lincoln lot are. "can't see the one way signs" - really - grow up man and embrace the event for what it is. An opportunity to promote Lincolnshire and bring in some decent revenue.

    I for one am looking forward to the Christmas market. I've never been before, and is something to get people in the Christmas Spirit. Drives a bit of revenue to the city as well, so cant be bad. I also can't see any one way signs on the photos. Shame. I also didnt see any pictures of public toilets.....
