Around the World with Bristol Shopping Quarter


Bristol Shopping Quarter's Around the World Flag trail will run from 22 July to 2 September. Collect a passport from Specsavers in Merchant Street, Bakers Dolphin in The Arcade, Julian Charles in The Galleries, or the information desk in Cabot Circus and search for the 50 flags that will be hidden in shops around Bristol Shopping Quarter.

If you find at least 25 flags, and enter the names of the relevant countries on your passport, you can enter a prize draw to win a fantastic prize – simply return your passport to one of the above venues where there will be post boxes for entries.

Events each Tuesday from 25 July to 29 August will continue the Around the World theme. Expect a celebration of all things Australian the first week with Hawaii, Mexico, Kenya, Japan and Jamaica to follow.

The Galleries will be hosting a special pirate themed event on Friday 21 July and Saturday 22 July, with visits from Captain Hook and Smee plus performances, balloon modelling, games, face painting and more.

And on Thursdays 27 July; 3, 17 & 24 August the centre will host a series of English country garden themed craft activities. Young shoppers will have great fun painting sun catchers and garden gnomes, decorating pots, making wind catcher mobiles and bird feeders, and will be able to take the results of their work home.

Cabot Circus is set to serve up a feast for eager customers with the return of Summer Food Fest, dedicated to the best food and drink Cabot Circus has to offer. Taking place throughout August, Summer Food Fest will see many of Cabot Circus' restaurants join forks-es to feature mouth-watering discounts and delectable samples in centre.

Kicking off on 4 August with a specially created pop-up Menu Bar, positioned in the central space outside House of Fraser, where participating restaurants will showcase their offering by giving away free samples and hosting food presentations for shoppers every hour.

From 'Kids Eat Free' at Bella Italia, 25% off food to take away, or free desert with any main course, this is one food feast that will leave you hungry for more.

View and download all the exclusive Summer Food Fest offers via the Cabot Circus PLUS App, available from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Following a successful inaugural event in 2016, the Tour of Broadmead will return to Bristol Shopping Quarter this summer. Inspired by the Tour of Britain, the static bike challenge will see representatives from eight different good causes trying to replicate a stage of that tour each day, with plenty of help from retailers along the way.

Starting in Marks & Spencer on Saturday 29 July, when the Lord Mayor of Bristol will shout out “Ready… steady… go!” to officially start the event, the tour will move to a different location at the end of each day, ready for the next charity to start pedalling first thing in the morning. It will finish at PureGym Union Gate on Saturday 5 August.

The first Tour of Broadmead raised £3,700 and the BID team are hoping to exceed that this year.

The charities taking part include Southmead Hospital Charity and British Red Cross London Fire Relief Fund with further announcements due soon.
