I took this photograph on the 1st of December around 5 o’clock in the afternoon..
I am at the city centre of Coventry where the newly set up ‘Christmas Village’ is being watched over by Lady Godiva on her horse. There are early Christmas shoppers but mostly I see university students curious to discover the offerings of the small colourful stalls . There is a smell of cooking in the air. I notice a queue of students waiting for German sausages now a must have food in the Christmas markets. A couple of Sweet Old Ladies are admiring the decorations. They look happy.
It is a lovely start to the festive season. The magic begins….
