Hey guys, it’s Wednesday and we’re thinking about the weekend.
After we were teased with the glorious sunshine and warmer weather just a few weekends ago it’s returned to a slightly colder and a more believable British March, so in that case let’s see if we can find some events fitting with that.
(Plenty of beer garden and picnic time to come, we’re sure! )
Our first Friday selection is a true theatrical marathon, it’s Jane Eyre at the Bristol Old Vic. This really is a feast at four and a half hours, but it’s totally worth it! Starting at 5pm means you have enough time to cram enough Bronte before bedtime- or maybe even a post theatre cocktail- and it’s a wonderful remake of a truly gripping novel. Tickets £45. More info.
Second up is the stunning Rebecca Ferguson at Colston Hall. She’s the endearing Liverpudlian girl that won the hearts of many in 2010 when she appeared on X Factor. In 2012 Ferguson was nominated for two MOBO Awards and an MTV Europe Music Award. Among her influences, she cites Aretha Franklin, Kings of Leon, Amy Winehouse and Sam Cooke. More info.
From 10:45am at The Arnolfini there will be a free screening that will be exploring cities and inventions with animated adventure Robots.
In a robot world, a young idealistic inventor travels to the big city to join his inspiration’s company, only to find himself opposing its sinister new management.
Films are rated U and are suitable for all ages. More info.
Our second freebie selection is the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, what’s new is their Orpheus Mosaic (exhibiting until April 20th) along with the regular excellent displays of French and Eastern art and World Culture and Natural Sciences. Details here.
For the last or first little dance of the weekend, why not check out Wild Beats & East India Youth at O2 Academy, losing yourself in intense electronic sounds (circa 1980’s and 90’s). Supported by the brilliant East India Youth it has expectations of a pretty excellent night. Tickets here.
