10 things to do in Bristol this week – December 24-28
Make the most of the week ahead with our guide to what’s on in Bristol.
1. It’s a busy day in the Number One Lost Present Department. It’s Christmas-time and lots of presents have gone astray. Vic and Ed need to do some detective work… and FAST… to find a home for all the lost presents before it’s too late. And that’s not easy to fit in when there are so many other things to do, like playing games, making up songs, and inventing fun new toys. Can they do it or will there be children without presents? The Lost Present is a fun packed 50 minutes of physical comedy, musical mayhem and silly songs, with lots to make the little ones in your life laugh out loud. Catch the performance at The Brewery Theatre up until January 13. Tickets £7.
2. Fancy something different to Christmas carols? Head to The Louisiana on Thursday night to see Bristol groups The Warpspeed Orchestra and We Are Strangers Minds. Tickets £4 in advance.
3. If you want to get out of the house or away from visiting family on Christmas Eve, head to the The Gallimaufry on Gloucester Road for their special Christmas Eve open mic night. It will be a fun and relaxed evening of varied music hosted by Rimas Molis from 8-11.30pm – all performers welcome.

4. Watch a festive film with a twist at The Watershed on Thursday. Boxing Day will be shown three times that day. Based on Tolstoy's classic Master and Man, Boxing Day is the third film in Bernard Rose's loose trilogy of modern day interpretations of Tolstoy stories. Danny Huston once again takes the leading role, this time as Basil, a greedy businessman who abandons his family the day after Christmas to fly out to Denver and check out a string of foreclosed properties that he hopes to buy on the cheap. He and his chauffeur Nick (Matthew Jacobs) delve into the heart of the Rocky mountains as the weather becomes more and more dangerous and soon the quest for money becomes instead a dramatic fight for survival.
5. Meet the Biology curator on Friday at Bristol Museum and Art Gallery and bring in your wildlife find for her to identify. For more information about this event contact museum reception on 0117 922 3571 or email@example.com. This event – called Wildlife Friday Finds - forms a series of events supporting Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition.
6. Meet and feed Santa’s reindeer - Jingle and Belle have flown in to Bristol Zoo for the Christmas holidays. Visitors can get up-close to the reindeer, stroke their velvety noses and feed them their favourite food. Small additional charges apply, for full details of what’s on at Bristol Zoo this winter, visit their website.
