If you’re thinking of studying at BU, you might be wondering what the festive season is like in Bournemouth. Here’s a taster of what’s going on this Christmas – perhaps you’ll even be persuaded to come and visit?

Bournemouth Christmas Marketchristmas-tree-wordpress
13 November – 4 January
An Alpine Market, Moose Bar and open air stage. Lowri Roberts has done some investigative work, so read her blog to find out more.

Garden of Light Festival
28 November – 6 January

Outdoor Ice Rink in Bournemouth Gardens
28 November – 6 January

Panto at The Lighthouse – Robin Hoodlight-gardens
5 December – 4 January

Panto at The Pavilion – Peter Pan
6 December – 4 January

Indoor Ice Rink at The BIC
13 December – 22 February

White Chistmas Dip – Boscombe Pier
25 December
No, we haven’t had too many sherries. A Christmas dip in the sea is very popular and a good chance to raise money for charity. Think I might stay at home and watch A Muppet’s Christmas Carol instead…

Dub Optic NYE – The Old Fire Station
31 December
The ultimate NYE party at SUBU’s very own venue.


Thanks to Bournemouth Tourism for the Alpine Market photo.
