Glos Rd becomes party Central!
IT'S that time of year again when Gloucester Road traders are shaking out the tinsel, putting up the lights and planning the Glos Rd Central Christmas Street Party on Thursday 6 December, from 5 - 8pm.
Once again there will be lots of festive goodies, including burgers and bangers outside Giles Butchers and Christmas cakes and biscuits from Joe’s Bakery. The Bristol Jam Plan will also set up outside Joe’s to offer jams and preserves. Artemis will give a free raffle ticket with every purchase to win a gift voucher worth £50. Room 212 will be spilling onto the street with wreaths made by Dot & Dandelion, who are creating an amazing gold leaf display around the front of the gallery.
Local Glos Vox choir will be singing traditional songs and live musicians are set to perform outside Alchemy 198, including a 12 piece ukelele band playing a suprising range of popular songs! Alchemy 198 will also launch their December exhibition in the Downstairs Gallery, with well known Bristol street artists in attendance. Dunleavy Vineyards plan to join the party, offering their locally produced English rose and sparkling wines and there'll be mulled wine to keep you warm and in the party mood.
And, of course, the shops will be staying open until 8pm to help you begin your local Christmas shopping.
All in all, this popular well attended community event is perfect for all the family, no matter what the weather!
