Illuminated boat parade on 22 December 2018 on Bristol’s harbourside

Posted on: 05 Dec 2018

Watch as the City Docks are lit up with Cabot Cruising Club’s illuminated boat parade happening on Saturday 22 December! 

From 18:30, join the Cabot Cruising Club for a Christmassy crusade around the Bristol Docks. Fellow vessel-owners, crews and boaters are welcome to decorate their ships and sail alongside. What a perfect way to get into the festival spirit, hey?

A special event from Cabot Cruising Club

If you don’t have a ship to sail, then no problem. Spectate the festive harbourside waters and then join everyone for a social evening at Cabot Cruising Club, Bathurst Basin. Mulled wine, nibbles and great company; this get-together is a perfect last hoorah before the festivities really ramp up. 

Cabot Cruising Club was founded in 1937. Since, the club has grown to hold a bustling social calendar, and its very own iconic vessel - The John Sebastian LV55. You don't have to own a boat to join! 


Prince Street Bridge will be opened at 18:30 and 20:00 only, so guests and boaters are asked to be on time! See a shimmering harbourside on 22 December from 18:30.
