Clifton Village promises to be the most magical place to shop, dine and relax this festive season. The celebrations start on Wednesday November 9 with the enchanting ‘Christmas Light Switch On’ organised by BID Clifton Village.

It is a really magical evening and draws several thousand people. Star of the show will be the beautiful 50ft Christmas tree in the Mall Gardens which takes up residence for two months in the Mall Gardens.

The fun starts at 5.30pm with carol singing and musical performances around the tree for all to enjoy, followed by the big switch on at 6.30pm.

In the run up to Christmas the streets will be glowing with decorations, fairy lights and over 100 little Christmas trees adorning many of the shops. The impressive range of independent shops and boutiques in Clifton Village make finding that perfect gift simple and the many cafes, pubs and restaurants provide the perfect place to relax and soak up the festive atmosphere.

“We want to make Christmas very special this year and Clifton Village provides the perfect backdrop for a truly magical season. The festive shops, beautiful trees and twinkling lights will bring out the inner child in all of us! '' said Andrew Morgan MBE, Chairman BID Clifton Village.

If that gets you in the Christmas spirit then there are two other major light switch on events in the city to go to. On Thursday, November 10, the All Saints are switching the lights on at The Mall as well as performing a charity concert. Tickets will be given away every day from mid-October at The Mall Information Desk in exchange for a suggested donation of £2 per ticket in aid of Children In Need. This is followed by a free, family event at Cabot Circus shopping centre on Friday, November 11, start time to be confirmed.
