Christmas starts on Friday 10 November

The festive season will get underway in Bristol Shopping Quarter on Friday 10 November when the Christmas Market opens and the Christmas Lights are switched on.

From 5:30pm the Snow Queen and her elves will lead a procession from The Galleries through Quakers Friars into Cabot Circus, stopping to serenade the crowds along the way.

The festive fun kicks off at 6pm in Cabot Circus as pupils from The Dolphin School perform a selection of Christmas songs. then watch in wonder as Cirque Bijou’s mischievous acrobatic elves climb a mountain of presents to turn on the Christmas lights.

Afterwards take a look around Bristol’s Christmas Market, which will be open every day until Christmas Eve.
