Mugs and glasses

The mugs used at the 2017 Christmas markets

We run a mug and glass deposit scheme at the Christmas markets. Pay a £2.50 deposit on your mug (£1 for glasses) when you buy your gluhwein, coffee or beer, then either get your money back when you return it, or keep the mug to take home as a souvenir.

You can also buy brand new, clean mugs, from any of the drinks stalls for £2.50.

How the scheme works

The scheme is compulsory for all traders selling drinks. Traders rent the mugs from us and use them throughout the markets to cut down on rubbish. You won't find any disposable cups on offer from our traders.
