Christmas at BRLSI

After a successful launch last year, the Bath Royal Literature & Scientific Institution is hosting another indoor Christmas market for local, independent designer/makers.

Designed to be affordable, fun and flexible the BRLSI market brings together like minded exhibitors and provides an opportunity to present the very best in local artistic output to the people of Bath and visitors alike.

If you’re a local maker or maker of handmade goods and would like to consider a stall please click on the link below. If you have questions please email james.hamilton@brlsi.org or call 01225312084.

Sitting on Queen Square, BRLSI’s exhibition space is perfectly situated on the edge of central Bath, capturing visitor traffic but also easily accessed by residents keen to avoid the busy city centre.

Running alongside the main Christmas market, stallholders benefit from a warm indoor festive setting and exhibiting among like minded artists. Each space will have a 1.5m x 75cm table, 2 chairs & plug point if required. Stallholders will also be given a daily free tea or coffee to get their day off to a good start.

The BRLSI Designer & Maker Xmas market will be open every day from 28th November until 15th December with bookings available for 3 day, 4 day or bespoke slots.

If you would like to see the space please visit us at 16 Queen Square, BA1 2HN. 

For further details and to secure space please apply. We are aiming to inform successful stallholders by 31st July 2024.
