Christmas

PLEASE NOTE ALL INFORMATION ON THIS PAGE IS SUBJECT TO CURRENT GOVERNMENT RESTRICTIONS AND MAY CHANGE AT ANY TIME

Non-essential retail will be open from Wednesday 2 December although cafes and restaurants are only allowed to offer takeaways and deliveries while Bristol is subject to Tier 3 restrictions – see more information HERE.

The Christmas lights are now on in Bristol Shopping Quarter and the festive shopping season has begun. There is no doubt things will be a little different this year, with some events, including the Christmas markets, postponed until 2021.

You can be assured of a warm welcome in Broadmead, The Galleries, The Arcade and Cabot Circus and we encourage you to start your present buying early to reduce the chance of queues forming and to make social distancing easier. Our retailers will be following current government guidelines and we ask you all to ‘wash hands, cover face, make space’ when you come shopping.

 

Winter Pop-Up Shop

After the success of their last two Winter Pop-up Shops, Bristol Etsy Team and Bristol Girl Bosses are joining forces again this Christmas!

The Winter Pop-Up Shop returns to the first floor of The Galleries Shopping Centre in Bristol Shopping Quarter from early December until Wednesday 23 December.  Featuring over 80 talented local makers, artists and designers, the shelves will be packed with some of the finest items from Bristol’s most exciting creatives.

As the shop is run by the makers and artists themselves, shoppers have the opportunity to speak to those who created the items they are buying directly.

The Winter Pop-Up Shop will be located on the first floor of The Galleries Shopping Centre (by Waterstones).
