St Nick’s Night Market
December 6, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC+1| Free
Eat, drink, be merry, sing carols and shop for local, artisanal, handmade gifts at one of Bristol’s best-loved events.
This year’s festive night market falls on St Nicholas Day itself and is the perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit with family and friends, while supporting small, local businesses.
The evening will kick off with carol singing from St Nick’s Church on The Registry Office steps. St Nicholas Church is also playing host to a festive market as part of The Night Market where you will be able to buy beautiful, one-of-a-kind crafts and delicious edible gifts for your loved ones.
From 5pm-8pm children will have the opportunity to meet Saint Nicholas himself in his grotto inside the church. There will also be crafting, Christmas card making, candle decoration making and more.
Corn Street will play host to its usual selection of world-class street food, with a few festive twists thrown in for good measure. Grab yourself a ‘Christmas Kelis’ from Espensen Spirits – a boozy milkshake with rhubarb and custard vodka, or a mulled wine to go with your grilled four-cheese mac and cheese from Alp Mac, or how about some Indonesian specialties from Enggi’s Kitchen? Hot, freshly cooked churros, gourmet burgers, warming stews and Butcombe Brewery and their popup bar and kitchen. There will be plenty of vegan options too, including Two Broke Girls and their jackfruit nuggets.
St Nicholas Street will also be hosting more street food, including Christmas dinner wraps, and seafood from Winkle Picker. Valleyfest’s ice cream van will be providing a soundtrack, along with DJs outside Mr Wolf’s and even more carol singing. Or swing by The Boardroom for a festive tipple.
Market mainstays, The Exchange Hall, Glass Arcade and Source will all be open too, offering up some more quirky Christmas shopping options, an opportunity to order top quality Christmas food, and a chance to enjoy some of Bristol’s best street food.
Commenting, event organiser Lorna Knapman said: “We cannot wait to get into the festive spirit, and what better day to celebrate than St Nicholas Day itself? Bring your family and friends and come and join us for a festive feast.”
