Ice sculptures in York

On Sunday we went to York Swinegate and the Minster Quarters to see The Festival of Angels. The Festival consisted off a show of ice sculptures from Harry Potter to Christmas angels.

This sculpture was also on a stall with baileys coming out of the bottle : ). It was chilly but I had a mulled wine which warmed me up.

There was a band playing in the Quarter which got us in a Christmassy mood. At one point I thought it had started snowing again until I noticed there was a snow machine. A very convincing Father Christmas was there with his reindeer and sleigh

It was very busy and lots of lovely stalls selling food and spicy drinks. Many of the shops had stalls in the street, such as this adorable sweet shop

Grape Lane, Little Stonegate and Swinegate were all transformed into a bustling event with lots of winter cheer, a lovely Sunday afternoon out.
