What’s On in Bournemouth this Christmas?

Whether you’re yearning for that first mulled wine, frosty footstep, or roasted chestnut, it’s fair to say Bournemouth has everything needed this year to get you in the festive spirit. Take a peek at just a few of the things to do in Bournemouth this Christmas:

Ice Skating

Whether you’re a ‘pro-pirouetter’ or an edge-of-the-rink holder, this Christmas tradition will undoubtedly leave you in the festive spirit. For those looking to make a weekend of it, end the night snuggled in a cosy duvet at Brooklands’ dog friendly hotel in Bournemouth.

Giant Snow Globe

Looking to fulfil a childhood dream? Well look no further than Bournemouth’s giant snow globe that will be popping up around the town centre over the coming weeks. Shrink yourself, step inside and immerse yourself once again in a white Christmas.

BIC Bournemouth

Once again, this Christmas sees the BIC host a wealth of festive treats. Starting with Cinderella paying the south-coast a visit in this year’s pantomime on the 3rd of December, Bournemouth’s number one event destination will be getting Christmas visits from David Brent (Ricky Gervais), Jools Holland and The 1975. A perfect way to kick off your yule tide celebrations.


For those looking to get some rest at the end of a long night, Brooklands B&B hotel near the Bournemouth International Centre is perfect for those wanting to scamper straight to bed from the event.

The Christmas Market

For those looking to get some last-minute Christmas gifts, Bournemouth’s Alpine Market offers a range of unique arts and craft stalls with handmade festive kick-knacks. When the shopping is done, take a well-deserved ‘pit stop’ at the Moose Bar, where you can get your hands around that steaming mulled wine you’ve been longing for.

With so many events and Christmas activities on in Bournemouth this December, it’d be a shame to miss out on some of them. Therefore, why not extend your stay by spending the night at Brooklands’ dog friendly bed and breakfast in Bournemouth?
