Ah, Bristol- you babe. The weather has been amazing and (apparently) there’s lots more ahead of us. Plus, dare we say it, The World Cup is officially in full swing. Who you backing?
This week saw the start of Big Green week– the UK’s festival of eco ideas, art and entertainment. Across the week and certainly across the weekend there’s a variety of events from fashion shows to city sightseeing.
Also, there’s a film fundraiser based around the film Labrinth, where fancy dress is encouraged and it’s finishing off with a disco.
During the day, why not take a ‘walk on the wild side’ with local naturalist and bushcraft expert Steve England. Join the experts and take part in ‘The Big Bug Hunt’. Learn how to become a nature detective in a special woodland laboratory. Make amazing woodland crafts out of natural materials.
Meet at the Cameron Centre, Romney Avenue (BS7), Lockleaze. A Wild Day at Stoke Park is part of the bigger, better and wilder Festival of Nature 2014, with events across the West of England from May to July, and the Wild Weekend on Bristol’s Harbourside on 14 and 15 June. See Festival of Nature for the full programme.
The City of Bristol College final year students will be beginning their exhibition this Saturday, all being displayed at Centre Space in the city centre. This should be an interesting event and an excellent portrayal of young, local, talent.
Love food? Head out to Kings Weston House to the Love Food Festival. There’s an abundance of street food and other stalls at the grand building, and as the weather promises to behave, it looks like it would be well worth the trip out!
Have a great weekend, whatever you do xxx
