Pop­u­lar Christ­mas mar­kets re­turn

Bristol Post - - NEWS -

THIS year is fly­ing past and Christ­mas will be here be­fore we know it.

One of the main fea­tures of the fes­tive pe­riod in Bris­tol is with­out ques­tion the an­nual Ger­man mar­ket, which takes over Broad­mead for sev­eral weeks in the build-up to Christ­mas Day.

The mar­ket turns the city cen­tre into a win­ter won­der­land and last year there were more than 40 chalets sell­ing presents and au­then­tic Ger­man cui­sine, not to men­tion the win­try Jager bar.

And this year there will be an even wider se­lec­tion on of­fer ac­cord­ing to Cabot Cir­cus , which is or­gan­is­ing the mar­ket for the first time, with more than 50 stalls in­clud­ing a mix­ture of Ger­man and lo­cal Bris­tol in­de­pen­dents.

A spokesper­son said: “Bris­tol’s Christ­mas Mar­ket re­turns to the city cen­tre this year, open­ing on Novem­ber 9 to co­in­cide with Cabot Cir­cus’ Christ­mas Light Switch-on, and will open daily un­til De­cem­ber 23.”

“The ever pop­u­lar Jager Barn also re­turns as well as firm favourites in­clud­ing York­shire Pud­ding Wraps and Bratwurst.”

Along­side the stalls this year there will also be two ex­cit­ing new additions mak­ing their ap­pear­ance for the first time.

An ice curl­ing sta­tion with three lanes will give peo­ple the chance to go head-to-head with each other, while fam­i­lies are in­vited to the Christ­mas Grotto in Quak­ers Fri­ars to share their wish lists with Fa­ther Christ­mas.
