Festival of Angels

This weekend me and the lovely Wife visited a truly English Christmas Festival which had transformed the City of York’s unique streets into a wintery wonderland of Ice Sculptures, Festive Stalls, Ice Bars, Street Food and some really cool Street Entertainers. What was even more magical they’d guaranteed a sprinkling of snow, even though fake.. it really added to whole experience.

Although I could write a lot more about the Festival of Angels,  hopefully these 40+ images will tell the story of our day, even though I’ve left quite a few out…which will feature in my Next Post : Black Ice

THE SHAMBLES

The ancient street of the Butchers of York, mentioned in the Domesday Book of William the Conqueror. It takes its name from the word ‘Shamel’, meaning the stalls or benches on which the meat was displayed – later versions of which can still be seen. It was rebuilt about 1400, when it assumed its present character.
