With only 12 days left until Christmas, cultural hub Propyard have added a massive 16 metre ferris wheel to their newly transformed outside space.


From tomorrow (Wednesday 14 December), the special Winterland ice rink and ice bumper cars will be open each day with those keen to experience the best views around able to purchase tokens from £3.50 per person.

With star attraction Bjorn the Polar Bear already wowing Propyard visitors, the venue has added a 55ft ferris wheel to its Winterland extravaganza. Launching on Wednesday 14 and set to stay into January, visitors of all ages can expect even more winter magic at the St. Philips venue as the outdoor space is transformed into a wonderland of festive fun. 


If Bjorn wasn’t enough to get residents thronging to Feeder Road, there will also two special rides for children alongside the outdoor ferris wheel. The special rides will be protected by the elements and blankets will be available to keep riders warm as they get their thrills.


Hot chocolates, toddies and other festive treats will be on offer, providing the ultimate winter warmer whilst enjoying this arctic journey and the December fun doesn’t stop there!

There are just a few tickets left for a Romeo + Juliet spectacle on Friday 16 December, bringing an evening of Montague and Capulet grandeur to Propyard. Inspired by the rich, Hollywood extravagance of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet.


This is a Christmas party like no other that invites Montegues, Capulets and Bristolians alike to enjoy an authentic Italian feast before being whisked away for an unforgettable evening of dancing – and drinking. Find out more here.


While it may not be coming home for Southgate and his Lions, but the football festivities are not quite over yet. The biggest screen in Bristol is still up at Propyard and tickets are available from the venue’s website to soak up the World Cup Final atmosphere on Sunday 18 December.

From 2pm until 6pm, football fans from all over can get their head in the game one last time before the Women’s World Cup in 2023. 

Propyard’s Winterland is free to attend with tickets for the ice rink and ice bumper cars available to purchase from the venue website. Prices begin at £8.
