Nightmare Before Christmas at Arnos Vale Cemetery

DOORS: 17:30 | FILM STARTS 17:50

BFF are back for one more night in 2022 at Arnos Vale this December! Join after dark in Bristol’s very own necropolis – get a drink from the pop-up bar then make your way through the graveyard to the beautiful Anglican Chapel to take your seat for the show.

Returning one more night this December, start the evening with a screening of the macabre musical masterpiece The Nightmare Before Christmas. Join Jack Skellington and the inhabitants of Halloween Town for this beloved stop-motion misadventure from the mind of Tim Burton.

ABOUT THE FILM 1993 | PG | 76 mins

In the spooky world of Halloween Town, Jack Skellington grows weary of the same annual festivities. When he accidentally stumbles upon another world, Christmas Town, his desire to host his own version of Christmas borders on the obsessive. Will Jack’s plans come together, or will he lose everything he cares about? Get ready for a spooky sing along and dance with the Oogie Boogie man.
