Top of the shops

This year A Festive Bonanza is bringing shopping, markets, choirs, experiences, street entertainment, food and drink to Gloucester Road.

 It’s time to get local and spend the day shopping, drinking, singing...enjoying all the best the street has to offer! 

A Festive Bonanza takes place on Saturday 1 December, which is also Small Business Saturday, so look out for offers from local businesses. From 9.30am - 2.30pm there will be a Cozy Market with stalls selling quality gifts, set up by The Xmas Tavern, at 102 Gloucester Rd. The Riff Raff Choir perform between 11am and midday, followed by rousing music and dance from Bristol Samba, at 12.30 - 1.15pm.

In the mid-afternoon events move lower down the Gloucester Road to the Prom, for a market with hot food stalls and festive drinks from local bars.

The Riff Raff choir are leading a workshop style Prom Sing-a-Long between 5pm - 6.30pm on the terrace of The Blue Lagoon. This is a FREE event (charity donation optional at the end). To take part, register via the events page on Facebook @BristolsIndieDistrict. This is a fun event where everyone is welcome, whether you have sung before or not. The aim is to transform a community in a short time into a great sounding harmonizing choir who can sing a song!
