On Saturday 9th February, from 11am – 4pm, the beautiful and intriguing Christmas Steps Arts Quarter, in keeping with its reputation for independent artisan traders, is hosting a romantically tinged Heart-isan Market on the unique Christmas Steps themselves.
Come along for a lovely afternoon and experience the wonderful teetering charm of the artisans’ stalls cascading down the Steps, showcasing the high standard of beautiful crafts and wares – everything from cakes and preserves, to taxidermy, original art works and illustration and accessories, providing you with the perfect opportunity to pick up local, handmade and fully unique Valentine’s Day presents.
Romance will be in the air with songs of love emanating from the human jukebox and did you know that The Christmas Steps Artisan Market has an excellent track record in match-making? One of our regular stallholders met her long term boyfriend at the market when he – a resident on the Christmas Steps – opened his front door and found the woman of his dreams staring back at him from a stall! And if that weren’t enough, there are many other artisan traders and businesses in this unique and beautiful site in Bristol’s city centre, as well as great places to eat and drink.
When was the last time you took a walk down a different street? The Christmas Steps Arts Quarter consists of eight unique streets in Bristol’s old city, lined with independent shops, art galleries, bars, cafes and more than a few surprises, where artisans and creative traders work side by side to keep this diverse corner of Bristol as unusual as it’s been throughout its long and intriguing history.
