Princes Street’s famed Winter Wonderland is going ahead this Christmas, despite recent reports that it is facing funding problems and criticisms of its environmental impact.

A spokesperson for Porta Novelli, the media group which handles the annual festive extravaganza, remarked that it was ‘business as usual’ for the Edinburgh event which runs from 26 November – 4 January, however refused to comment on the alleged financial issues.  This news will please Edinburgh locals and visitors, who flock to the popular German Markets and ice rink each year to get in the Christmas spirit.
