Bath and Bristol Santa Float 2023 route and dates - everything you need to know

  • Watch as the 2023 Christmas Float is revealed.


Santa's magical Christmas float returns to Bath, Somerset and Bristol this month, with 14 separate routes announced.

This year's cart is raising money for Suicide Prevention - after raising £13,500 for the charity last year and £15,000 for the Ben Saunders Foundation in 2021.

The float is celebrating its fourth birthday with lots of snow, smoke and magical effects.

Jerry Davis is the man behind the magic. It costs him £5,000 to build the float each year and all the proceeds raised are donated to charity.
