St Nick’s Night Market, on March 2nd between 5pm – 10pm has got all the ingredients for a perfect Friday night: award winning street food, live music, decks and djs, plus performance art and wellbeing activities. Not to mention botanicals and beauty products. So whether you want a beautifully concocted
coffee or cocktail; kefir or kombucha, St Nick’s night market can offer it all!
With wellbeing on the menu: realignment, refreshment and revitalising rule! Wander down to the Radnor rooms (30 St Nicholas St), where you’ll find a wellbeing-only focused market place. Expect therapists, health food, drinks, artisanal crafts, natural beauty products and galore.
Calm your mind, strengthen your body and indulge in some yoga. Yin yoga is a simple, quiet practice and Wild Wolf’s Yoga will be holding a 3 hour Yin-a-thon which everyone can dip in and out of. Yes, you can be part of the Yin crowd!
The Harbour Hotel (53-55 Corn St) will also be offering free mini treatments, an all vegan a-la-cart special menu in the Jetty Restaurant and the Gold Bar will showcase a selection of vegan beers and alcoholic drinks. So go and have a nose if you haven’t been in.
The street food market traders will be adding some healthy, plant-based options to their menus. From a gorgeous grilled mac and cheese by Alp Mac to divine dhals and seriously good salads from the Thali café, not forgetting iconic Indonesian street food by Enggis Kitchen plus sweet Spanish churros. You can taste flavours from all across the world, so come hungry!
There will be two stages of live music: one outside Mr Wolf’s on St Nick’s Street and other outside the Registry office on Corn Street. Both are curated by the team at Mr Wolf’s and will get you dancing in the street quicker than you can say Spring Fever.
Over in the glass arcade in St Nicks, you can expect chunks of funk from the Ghetto Funk Allstars who are also part of the team behind the award-winning Shindig Festival. Paul Rowley will be spinning some ital reggae and laid back beats.
If dancing is not your thing, then grab yourself a local ale, a stunning glass of sailed-cargo wine, foraged cocktail or legendary Dick Willows cider and take a wander through the markets, which will be staying open for some late night shopping. Inside, the markets are a treasure trove of trinkets, hats, jewellery, fossils, clothing, wool, chocolates and gifts. There really is something for everyone.
Lorna Knapman, Event Director, says: “Bristol’s Old City Centre will be alive with buzz and bustle, music and markets, artisanal bars and artists, botanicals and beauty products of all kinds, there is much fun to be had!”
The St Nicholas Night Market is supported by The Bristol City Centre BID, Mr Wolf’s and the Harbour Hotel.
To follow our leap into plant based goodness, a new vegan street food and wellbeing market will launch at St Nicholas Market on Monday 5th March 11 – 2.30 and every other week thereafter.
