BrisStyle Indie "Christmas" Twilight Market

This Friday Night - 17 December - 5pm-9pm

BrisStyle indie "Christmas" Twilight Market - Handmade Holidays

King George Square and Burnett Lane, Brisbane CBD

Presented by BrisStyle inc and Brisbane Marketing and supported by Brisbane City Council

'Tis the season to be jolly.....

This Friday night the Brisbane CBD will come to life with Christmas good cheer and holiday wishes as the BrisStyle indie Designers once again light up the night with not only their lantern lit stalls but their stunning array of top quality handmade items including jewellery, accessories, clothing, homewares, toys, artworks and heaps, heaps more.
It will truly be a night to remember and one the whole family will enjoy. Stalls will be set around the famous King George Square's Christmas Tree and travel down the Grand Ramp as well as the hip and happening Burnett Lane.
In particular, Burnett Lane will be the hub of the cool and eclectic where you'll find a collection of quirky and unique handmade items as well as local indie performers at the junction of Albert St.

A video installation by Brisbane Artist Andrew DK Forsyth will be projected onto the walls at the beginning of the Laneway. There will also be a quirky roving projection throughout the entire market that will also conjure up memories of Christmas in Queensland with a kitschy, handmade twist!

Music and Entertainment

King George Square will be filled with the big band sounds of the 'Brisbane Excelsior Band', while the 'Allstar Jazz Trio' mingle amongst the crowds.
There will be roving street performers wowing the crowds so keep your eyes peeled for Angels and Elves and all sorts of Christmas characters roaming through the stalls.
Local Indie Bands will be pumping out the tunes under the gorgeous blue lit arbour at the junction of Burnett Lane and Albert St.
In between all your festive BrisStyle retail therapy make sure you catch:
Soloist Eleanor Angel 5:00pm – 5:40pm

The Markets will be supporting the Lord Mayor's Community Trust by raffling a hamper full of gorgeous handmade items donated by all the stallholders so make sure you grab your ticket (or two) from the BrisStyle Promo Stand in King George Sqaure. Councillor, Fiona King will be drawing the winner on the night at 8pm!
