Our 2018 Sponsors & Supporters

It was  a close thing this year, but once again we are putting on the Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade thanks to the vital help and support from our sponsors and supporters who help us in so many different ways.

For 2018 we are delighted to be welcoming back many organisations as well as saying hello and thank you for the first time to some new faces.  So here they are!

Hi! We’re Lindsay and Joel and we opened Toyville in October 2016. Our independent toy shop in Bedminster is a true family business. We own and run the shop with help from our son Xander.

As parents to a young child we found it difficult to find different and interesting toys near our south Bristol home. We saw an opportunity to start a new business so we took the bull by the horns and launched Toyville.

We want our shop to be a welcoming space where children (and adults!) can come have a play without having to worry about breaking things or telling the children not to touch

Hopper Coffee is a little coffee and cake business working out of the back of a Piaggio Apé. We can be found at our regular pitch in Greville Smyth Park, and also events local to BS3. Have a look at our website to find out more information or to get in touch.



At Shake Express you can find an exciting mix of individually prepared, irresistable hot and cold milkshakes.  We are a family business set up back in 2011 by a mum and daughter, Marion and Becky.
