This spring the bewitching Candlelight concerts will illuminate one of the UK’s largest and most culturally important cities. Bristol will be able to enjoy a number of concerts under candlelight with some of the best music of the last decades. There’s something for everyone, from the music of legendary groups ABBA and Queen to the brilliant Hans Zimmer.
Bristol is famous for its eclectic architectural styles spanning five centuries. So, it can only be fitting for these tributes to take place in some of the city’s most enchanting landmarks, like the Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, St. Mary Redcliffe Church and the Mount Without.
Featured Candlelight concerts
Candlelight: A Tribute To ABBA
Gracing St Mary Redcliffe Church is a tribute to one of the most popular groups of all time. ABBA are known for their upbeat hits and catchy lyrics that capture honest truths. At the concert you can look forward to hearing “Mamma Mia”, “Take a Chance On Me”, “Money, Money, Money”, “Does Your Mother Know” and many more performances of fan favourites.
You can’t experience classical renditions of the Swedish supergroup’s music other than under the gentle glow of candles at a breathtaking venue . The building’s striking architecture and decorative stone vaults and decorations make for the perfect companion to soothing melodies.
