The Festival of Angels is a two-day outdoor free festival organised by traders in the small area of York city centre called 'The Quarter' as a thank you to all their customers over the previous year.
The area is closed off to traffic and a series of ice sculptures are placed along the streets, along with outside food and drink stalls, some street entertainment, and everything is dusted with snowflakes which fall from the upper storeys of the buildings.
The Festival is a favourite with York residents and visitors and it's a relaxing break from the hectic side of Christmas, full of the spirit of Christmas.
