Entertainment During the Bath Christmas Market

Throughout the market we put on a jam-packed programme of entertainment over the 18 days. The whole site came alive with musical entertainment, performances and events.


Musical Entertainment

Bath Christmas Market played host to children’s school choirs, musical duos, carols by candlelight, three piece entertainers, flutists, pianists, chamber choirs and so much more. You were sure to stumble across some entertainment during your visit to really get you into the festive spirit.

The fantastic Rock Choir and Shean Bowers Choirs brought the Market alive with Christmas carols and other popular sing-along tunes.

The Norland Choir also performed on opening night at Abbey Green Archway from 7pm.

Bath Spa Band

Opening Ceremony
