Sven Schmidt, director of German Events which organises the market, said: “We are very excited to be returning to Bristol this year. It was heartbreaking to have to cancel 2020’s event, but we always put the safety of our visitors first.

“We are very happy to be able to welcome visitors back to the market once more and hope they enjoy the addition of our snow domes which are a wonderful way to enjoy a seasonal drink with friends and family. The whole team can’t wait to get started!”

The Christmas market is home to over 50 stalls, and usually features visits from Santa and reindeer visits in December.
