Christmas Entertainment in Hereford

Late-night shopping and entertainment for all in Hereford this December.

We’re getting Christmas going with a bang! Join Hereford City Life for fun, festive activities across the city centre during December. From live music to walkabout performers, there’s plenty to enjoy while taking in the twinkling lights and finishing off your Christmas shopping.

Live Music

From Christmas hits to funk and soul, Hereford will be full of music on Late Night Wednesdays and on the last weekend before Christmas, with fantastic artists bringing their sound to the city. You can find the headline acts on our main stage in High Town and other fantastic musicans performing in key spots around the city, including Broad Street and Widemarsh Street. Acts include The Piano Man, MammaFunk, Got2Sing Choir, and many more!

Walkabout Performers

Making the festive season extra magical are our walkabout performers. They will make their way around Hereford, perking up shopping-tired toddlers or cheering you up as you wander through the city centre. Keep an eye out for our Living Christmas Trees, Polar Bear and Frost Fairy, iGlobot, and other fantastic characters.

Golden Gift Card Giveaway
