Buh- so. It’s almost the weekend, the weather has been pretty crap, we’re a week away from The World Cup, what does Bristol have to offer us? We would also quickly like to take this opportunity to congratulate our winner of the £20 Your Street Gift Card- it was tough, but we loved the imagination of the entry: blackberry picking in Bristol <3
In keeping with le football, The Festival of Football Ideas are kicking off with their event that’s in support of Bristol Rovers Community Trust (sorry, city). Their main theme is that a variety of people are interested in football, all coming with different interests, careers and backgrounds- but with the common interest being football. There’s a mixture of events about the design background of football, the shape of football writing, poetry in football and comedy in football. Events vary between £0 and £5, which is very reasonable for their delightful offerings. Full details can be found on their site.
This one is worthy to pencil in over the whole weekend, not just Friday- running right through until the middle of June.
If you’re feeling a bit more disco- even after the parade of bank holidays- why not head over to Motion and check out Boddika, Redlight & co. Open 10pm until late.
St George’s have an evening from the BBC all about wildlife films made in Bristol, with special guests and a live Q & A. It’s a pretty cool event, all part of the Festival of Nature.
