for Handels Messiah at Colston Hall as your favourite British event.


Handel's Messiah at Christmas is a firmly established British tradition. In Bristol, that has included Bristol Choral Society's performance of Messiah at the Colston Hall on the Saturday before Christmas, since 1892.

These days, the choir performs the whole work from memory and is accompanied by the exquisite playing of a Baroque orchestra, making for a delightful start to any Christmas.

The 7.30pm complete evening performance is also preceded by a 4.30pm 'Mini Messiah' for families - introducing children to this festive masterpiece in under an hour.

Details and tickets from the Bristol Choral Society website.
