Visit Bristol unveils unique canvas for #MerryBristmas

We’re proud to reveal that the front of our building is the unique canvas for Visit Bristol’s #MerryBristmas campaign.

On Wednesday 13 November the finishing touches were applied to the installation showcasing work from eight local street artists. Commissioned by Stuff, the creative agency behind the campaign in collaboration with Visit Bristol, the artists include Kid Crayon, Marta Zubieta, Elaine Carr, Andy Council, Cheo, Tim Ulewicz, Lucas Antics and Silent Hobo.

Each street art mural depicts an aspect of Christmas in Bristol: Buzzing bars and restaurants; Remarkable places to stay; Inspirational museums, Sensational shopping; Thrilling live entertainment; Magical markets; Amazing attractions and Spectacular celebrations, with the first letter of each mural title spelling out BRISTMAS. The scenes will be used across Visit Bristol’s campaign to promote short breaks and things to do in Bristol over the festive season.

Come down to Colston Hall and see the installation for yourself, and make sure you take a photo from our selfie spot!

See some of our own Bristmas highlights coming up this festive season including the Made In Bristol Gift Fairs, exclusive Christmas Parties and our Music Centre Christmas Concerts.
