The Bull gets festive

The bull is never one to miss a trend; he’s donned the Joey Essex style quiff, the onesie look and the Wimbledon whites and now he’s embracing the Christmas jumper for the festive season.


Today his festive attire has been unveiled in the form of a red Christmas sweater adorned with all kinds of seasonal motifs, including snowmen, crackers and presents.

The popular bull, which is one of the most photographed landmarks in the UK, is following suit of the 36% of 18-29 year olds in the UK who confessed that they’ll be wearing festive jumpers on Christmas Day in a recent survey commissioned by Bullring.

Tim Walley, General Manager of Bullring, commented: “Our visitors love the bull and they’re always trying to guess what his next outfit will be; we’re sure that this rather Christmassy jumper will be a hit with our customers.”

Whilst the bull gets ready for Christmas so does the rest of the centre with late night opening hours starting yesterday, which sees Bullring opening until 10pm on weekdays during the month of December.
