The Square returns this winter for a Christmas pop-up like no other in Bristol for friends and family alike. This time around an Après Ski Bar, interactive light show aptly named Submergence, BUMP Roller Disco, free film screenings on We The Curious Big Screen Bristol, Christmas tipi’s and more all confirmed. Food comes from kitchen kings Pepe Nero bringing sustainable ingredients and ideology. The Square will be launching November 15th and running through to January 5th with dedicated Christmas events throughout December at Millennium Square.
The Après Bar is back for its fourth consecutive year, supplying a warming selection of drinks for those cold wintery nights. Mulled wine and cider will be flowing with the chance for all to snuggle up with a blanket and listen to live music on Thursday evenings. During the weekend, events will be DJ led running late into the night. As always, The Square retains its sustainable ethos with compostable cups at the bar and upcycled shipping containers from Pure Spaces creating the majority of the location.
Submergence by Squidsoup will be a free immersive and interactive art installation popping up on Millennium Square. The piece uses many thousands of individual points of suspended light to create feelings of presence and movement within a physical space. Squidsoup is a digital arts group specialising in interactive installations within physical 3D space. The work combines sound, light, physical space and virtual worlds to produce alluring and emotive headspaces.
An alternative winter activity is BUMP Rollerdisco, returning to Millennium Square with the upcycled mobile roller rink, giving Bristol a more sustainable option for skating.
