Countdown to Christmas in Bath


Mark the date Thursday, December 13 for a festive shopping bonanza in Bath with late-night opening until 8pm. With just 12 days to go before Christmas Day, plan a shopping night out to wrap up your gift list and pick out a pretty party frock. A winning combination of distinctive independents and favourite high street brands make Bath the top choice for a Christmas shopping spree.


If Christmas is less about cheer and more about chores with all of those trolleys full of food, cards to write and gifts to wrap, take a night off and relax with some friends. Enjoy complimentary drinks in store and then keep the party going with some serious seasonal dining (restaurants will be offering a crche service for your shopping bags).


Fun and in-store action includes free fizz, gift-wrapping service, discounts and goodie bags, and there will be carols plus the heady aroma of roasting chestnuts and mulled wine wafting through the crisp evening air in a magical Georgian setting decorated with twinkling Christmas lights. You can also enjoy carol singing from City of Bath Bach Choir in advance of its popular annual Carols by Candlelight concerts in the Pump Room.


Twelve lucky shoppers will have their Christmas dreams come true with a great prize draw which includes:


a Joys of Christmas hamper from Waitrose (worth 150)
hand-woven lambswool and cashmere scarf from Katherine Fraser
Rushan bowl from Robert Welch
Malene Birger scarf from Grace & Mabel
Christmas lantern from The Salcombe Trading Co


Entry forms available on the night fill in and drop into the collection points in Milsom Place, Waitrose and Jollys on Thursday, December 13.


Check bathatchristmas.co.uk for details of stores opening late and in-store treats, offers and entertainment. Park & Ride operates until 9.30pm for late night Thursday shopping (and now a seven days a week service).
