What’s On During the Bath Christmas Market

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


Musical Entertainment

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

Don’t miss the fantastic Rock Choir and Shean Bowers Choirs who will bring the Market alive with Christmas carols and other popular sing-along tunes.

The Norland Choir will also be performing on opening night at Abbey Green Archway from 7pm.

Opening Ceremony

Join us outside The Lodge on Stall Street between 6pm – 7pm to celebrate the opening of the Market for the 17th year. There’ll be live entertainment from Bath Spa Band, an opportunity to meet the Snow Queen and you’ll also enjoy a performance from the incredible Glow Drummers, all topped off with exciting special effects.
