Hundreds of people have packed into Birmingham city centre for the first day of the German Christmas Market.
Now in its 13th year, the market is said to be the biggest outside Germany.
This year, the market features 190 stalls and an ice rink, as well as the usual range of entertainment and seasonal drinks.
Market traders have been putting their finishing touches to their stalls ahead of the opening of Birmingham's German Christmas market.
The Birmingham Frankfurt Christmas Market returns tomorrow, so we decided to take a look at what's on offer this year.
