Wunderbar! Southampton Christmas Festival’s main bar and grill to stay open on Christmas Eve

Open from 10am to 4pm on Christmas Eve

After the resounding success of the Southampton Christmas Festival over the festive period, the organisers, Wela Markte, have decided to keep the bar and grill outside Westquay open for an extra day. Flying santa1These will be open on Christmas Eve from 10am to 4pm.

This extension offers last minute shoppers the chance to take a break from searching for presents to enjoy a festive lunch, and relax with a drink from the bar.

The rest of the chalets, selling seasonal food and drinks as well as unique gifts, will be closed on Christmas Eve, and Flying Santa makes his last flight at 6pm on Sunday 23 December. So, for the full Southampton Christmas Festival experience make sure you make a trip to Southampton before it’s too late!

Cabinet Member for Homes and Culture, Councillor Satvir Kaur said: 

“The Christmas offering in Southampton has been getting bigger and better year on year, and we’re so pleased to have welcomed so many happy visitors to Southampton over this festive season.

To top off a fantastic Christmas period in the city, we’re delighted that the market operators have agreed to keep part of the main catering offering open for an extra day.”
