What’s on in Bournemouth at Christmas?

Christmas is coming! You’ve undoubtedly seen the start of work in Bournemouth square and we are happy to announce that the bulk of our town’s festive attractions will be open by November 19.

The Christmas stage, with live acts belting out carols and more, opens even earlier, November 12, as does the popular Moose bar and alpine market.

New this year – SANTA EXPRESS (19 NOV – 30 DEC): a hop-on hop-off service for shoppers, perfect for those (like me) who hate the crowds but love the Christmas;

New this year – GIANT SNOW GLOBE (23 NOV – 6 DEC); a pop-up giant snow globe, various locations – sounds intriguing!

GARDENS OF LIGHT (19 NOV – 3 JAN); the ever-popular art installation in the gardens;

ICE SKATE IN THE GARDENS OF LIGHT (19 NOV – 3 JAN); the new rink includes ‘après-skate’ chalets with food by the South Coast Roast team and a bar serving warming mulled wine, mulled cider, champagne and craft beers;

CHRISTMAS STAGE IN THE SQUARE (12 NOV – 1 JAN); a variety of acts providing a packed programme of live entertainment throughout the festive period.

Also free parking in selected car parks on Thursdays from 4pm & all day Sunday from November 26.

Lisa Tucker, Chair of Bournemouth’s Town Centre Business Improvement District (BID), said: “We want Christmas in Bournemouth to be magical for the whole family. With the impressive lighting installations, skating under the stars and rides on the Santa Express – not to mention having your picture taken in the snow globe – there’s something for everyone and it’s a great way to spend the day!”
