Bristol is brimming with free events, festivals and markets during the winter.
Hardly a weekend goes by in Bristol without a free event, market or festival. During the winter, the city makes a great budget break without compromising on the festive or fun factor. Experience the magic of a traditional German Christmas Market in the heart of Bristol’s Shopping Quarter until the 23rd December.
Enchanting wooden chalets decorated with festive greenery, tasty treats and beer gardens ooze with Christmas spirit. Make sure to also check out Christmas at St Nicholas Markets, open throughout December, and the 50-stall Harbourside Christmas Market for award-winning preserves, gins and more.
A unique celebration of silent film and slapstick comedy, the festival offers a unique chance to watch silent films with a live orchestra along with a VIP list of guests and celebrities sharing their passion for this genre.
