Shoppers and tourists were disappointed last year when Oxford Christmas Market was cancelled due to the pandemic but organisers are planning for it to take place in December.

Here we look back at some old photos.

Last year the popular market was due to take place from December 3 to December 20 but instead traders were forced to opt for an online festive market.

Organiser Nicole Rahimi said on the market's Facebook page last year: "I am beyond sad to let you know that I have to cancel the Oxford Christmas Market 2020.

Oxford Mail:

"I believed I could provide a Covid-19 secure market and some form of normality in the lead up to Christmas, but the current Covid-19 guidelines and restrictions just make it impossible to organise a viable market."

Now organisers are planning for the market's return.
