Christmas Market

Now in its 39th year, our annual Christmas Market will be held on Saturday 30th November, 10am-3pm at the beautiful Ashton Court Mansion House on Ashton Court Estate. 

This historic building will provide the perfect backdrop to one of Bristol’s favourite, and growing, Christmas Markets. The site is fully accessible and will boast a variety of craft, fashion, gifts and food stalls in our indoor and outdoor market areas. With 50 stalls, onsite cafes offering both hot and cold lunches, snacks and seasonal treats such as mulled wine and mince pies, as well as crafting workshops for both children and adults, there truly will be something for everyone to enjoy at this special day out at Ashton Court.  

From homemade cakes and jams to stocking fillers, gift wrap and perfect presents; we invite you to join us for this very special event to enjoy the sounds and sights of Christmas and kick-off the festive season with St Peter’s Hospice! 


Our growing list of traders includes Zara’s delicious Chocolates, Cocoa & Ned’s handcrafted Christmas decorations, beautifully made children’s clothing by Staddon & Pamley, Bristol themed gifts from Citiviews, St Peter’s Hospice Charity Shops providing pre-loved festive wear and accessories and our popular Christmas Cards range, plus locally crafted furniture & wooden gifts, home décor, candles, handmade toys, vintage handbags and so much more!
