M Shed has also just opened its first joint curated exhibition, which combines the Angela Williams archive of Norman Parkinson's iconic work and an accompaniment of artefacts from the era.
These vintage prints were first taken as portrait and fashion photographs during the 50's and 60's, but over time, the iconic collection has gathered historical purpose, deeply tied to the emancipation of women and fashion.
If you’re looking for a weekend away then why not enjoy our Bristol Hotels and check out this awesome sight!
