Brighton Christmas Festival opens with an après-ski bar and live music
The Brighton Christmas Festival is back for 2022 with a range of attractions.
The festival opened for five weeks after a year of hard work by David Hill and his team at E3 Events based in Hove. The refurbished market and après-ski bar will be in St Peters Plaza, just next to St Peter’s Church in Brighton town centre.
David said: “I’m in heaven with the look of this year’s Christmas market. Early signs are very encouraging as we opened at 1pm on Friday 18th November and are expecting huge attendance. We’re open every day until Christmas Eve, and we’ve lined up some absolutely fantastic attractions. We have made some very positive changes from last year, and my team is ready for a successful five weeks.
“There really is so much going on over the five weeks. I hope we have created something that the City of Brighton and Hove will be very proud of this Christmas. It will hopefully be the first ‘normal’ Christmas for a few years after covid and the shutdowns, including last December. We want it to be the best – and we’re confident it will be.”
Here are some of the main attractions:
Mix of unique gifts from around the world
Après-ski bar – festive drinks and live entertainment in the ski chalet-themed bar
Santa’s Sleigh Ride Experience
Christmas Show – Elf Express is coming to Ironworks Studios from November 26
