John Latham, director of development and environment services at the council, said: “The Christmas Market is one of the greatest events in the city’s calendar and attracts people from around the globe.
“This year we are celebrating the market’s 30th year and have introduced some new elements to make it the biggest and best event to date.
“We have taken on board feedback from stallholders, businesses and visitors from last year and hope the changes will bring about a new, improved event for all involved.”
The market runs for four days and will officially launch with a traditional carol concert at the cathedral on the Thursday evening hosted by Mayor Patrick Vaughan.
The entertainment will continue throughout the weekend with singers and performances from theatre groups as well as the chance to take in the historical surroundings.
The park and ride system will once again be based at the showground on the outskirts of the city and extra trains are being put on from Leeds for the sole purpose of market visitors.
