Make Sunday Special is back this weekend! A free event for children and families, Make Sunday Special events bring everyone together and showcase the best Bristol has to offer.

From 11am – 4.30pm on Sunday 24th July, roads will be closed to traffic in the centre of Bristol, including Corn Street, Small Street, Clare Street, St Stephen’s Street and Glass Arcade so your kids can cycle, scoot or skateboard in safety.

This particular Make Sunday Special will be a special celebration of Bristol’s diverse culture.


Visitors will be treated to a feast for all the senses, including a global dance area, hosting dance performances from all corners of the world. Live music will be playing throughout the old city during the day, including African Sambistas, the Bristol samba band and dancers, James Morton, and live DJs spinning tracks from around the globe.

In the Children’s area, there will be games from around the world, plus activities such as pinata, swingball, origami and dumpling making workshops. The demo kitchen will also offer plenty of learning opportunities for kids, as chefs from 91 Ways and the Fair Trade movement share some top tips and culinary secrets from around the globe.

91 Ways will be running their peace café initiative, showcasing snacks and drinks from all over the world, including rose syrups, mint teas and baklava. Elsewhere, St Stephen’s Street will be transformed into a beach for the day, providing the perfect backdrop to listen to reggae while sipping rum cocktails and taking in the atmosphere.

There will be plenty of shopping opportunities both in St Nicholas Market, and in the surrounding streets, where a Fair Trade market will be selling fabulous produce from around the world.
