Anyone looking to buy a more unusual Christmas present will be spoiled for choice the following weekend, Saturday and Sunday, December 7 and 8, when the mill hosts a festive edition of Leeds Steampunk Market.

Described as “Jules Verne meets Doctor Who”, it will see eccentrically-costumed traders selling all manner of weird and wonderful items, while CHT volunteers will be giving flour milling demonstrations.

The market will be open 11am to 5pm and entry is £2.

CHT’s John Heywood said: “Festive, fun and creative are the themes of Christmas at the mill and we hope it will provide something to enjoy for the whole community.”
