St Nick’s Night Market returns on Friday May 10 between 5.00pm–10.00pm, signalling that summer is just around the corner!
New developments for this year’s Night Market include The Sansovino Hall in The Harbour Hotel on Corn Street, which will house an eclectic array of artisanal producers and makers of chocolate, cheese and botanicals. The regular traders in the Glass Arcade and the Corn Exchange will also be open for some late-night shopping, with a treasure trove of fossils, jewellery, maps, clothing and old photos of Bristol available to buy.
There’s no chance of visitors going hungry, with a host of delicious street food on offer from vegan producers Bun Fiction, who will be serving their plant-based buns and nachos, Grate with their out-of-this-world cheese toasties, Gurt Wings with their free-range buttermilk fried chicken wings and Ah Mah’s take on Cantonese cuisine.
In terms of drinks, Butcombe Brewery will be selling their independently brewed ales, Espensen Spirit will be serving their locally blended tipples including the fresh, herby and sharp Joni Collins, Dick Willow will be on hand to provide local elderflower cider, and The Boardroom will be running their own gin and tonic bar.
There will also be a range of fantastic live music on offer from the Colston Hall, who will be showcasing some of Bristol’s most exciting up-and-coming talent. In addition, Bristol legend John Stapleton, of St Nick’s very own ‘Wanted Records’, will also be spinning tunes in
The Glass Arcade.
Speaking about the event, Lorna Knapman, Event Director, said: “We are thrilled to welcome so many new producers to join our St Nick’s Night Market family.
“It’s the perfect way to kick-off a Friday night, dancing in the street in our first outdoor party of the season!“
