Popular Christmas markets return
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.
