The 21st Kelham Island Christmas market attracted more than 15,000 visitors over the two days.

John Hamshere, chief executive of Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust, said: “The market gets bigger and better every year and we’re staggered by the number of people we’ve had through the door.

“The atmosphere and weather has been wonderful. There are people in costume, morris dancers, buskers all over the place, music in the background and brass bands playing, which always brings a sense of Christmas.”

Stalls were located on cobbled streets and gas lamps added to the atmosphere. A ferris wheel was a new attraction.
