This summer 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 under the warm glow of candlelight. 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 architecturally impressive Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, the Gothic Revival-style St. Mary Redcliffe Church and the historic Mount Without. With so many concerts to choose from, there’s something to suit every musical taste. All you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
Featured Candlelight concerts
A Tribute to Whitney Houston at St Mary Redcliffe Church
Gracing St Mary Redcliffe Church is a tribute to one of the most popular singers of all time. Whitney Houston was the first artist to have seven consecutive number one hits and achieved the longest reigning number one single on the Hot 100 with “I Will Always Love You”. Her soulful melodies and beloved ballads are being brought to life by Northern String Quartet. This intimate tribute features renditions of “Higher Love”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”, “How Will I Know”, and many more fan favourites.
You can’t experience orchestral takes on an icon’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.
