The clocks have gone back, the central heating’s on and we’re cracking out the woolly jumpers… which means Christmas is just around the corner. Here at Colston Hall we’ve got a plate stacked high with musical treats for the festive-minded, and there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Scroll down for perfect present ideas and see what we have coming up this Christmas.
It’s time to get into the festive spirit! Introduce little ones to the magic of Christmas and the power of the orchestra as old friends Paddington & The Snowman come to town. For the romantics, what could be more christmassy than watching Love Actually on a big screen – with a live orchestra? If hearing classic carols puts the tingle in your tinsel, you can choose to be transported by much-loved quintet The Overtones, the bold brass of the Royal Marines Band, and the heavenly vocals of the Bristol Cathedral Choir School… And when it’s all over, blast into the new year with our Funk Yeah! NYE Party featuring Craig Charles, Soultrain, The Correspondents and much more.
We reckon there’s no gift more thoughtful than sharing a live show with a loved one, so we’ve got a few ideas up our sleeves to help you pick the perfect present. Order your tickets today so they’ll be delivered to your door in time for Christmas and you’ll earn maximum brownie points for knowing what lights up their Christmas tree. Make sure you order before Sunday 16 Dec to get them in time!
