It won’t be long before the bank holiday season is upon us – wahey! For those of you not braving the bank holiday traffic and in need of inspiration for Bristol orientated pursuits, here are some cultural activities for you to get involved in:
Bristol International Animation and Shorts Festival at The Watershed
As part of the Nominated Shorts Season, Encounters International Film Festival continues its celebration of the Oscars with a screening of the 2011 Nominated Short Animations presented in partnership with Shorts International. Watch out for 2011 winner, ‘The Lost Thing’, narrated by comedian Tim Minchin, which featured at Encounters Festival last year. Taking place all day on 17th April.
And on 1st May why not sit back and enjoy the Live Action Shorts from the Orange British Academy Film Awards 2011, also at The Watershed.
Every ticket holder gets 15% off a drink at the Café/ Bar after the screening.
May Bank Holiday sees the launch of the Harbourside Market; its aim to celebrate all things local. Whether it be hand made arts and crafts, or showcasing the best fresh produce that Bristol and the surrounding areas have to offer, this initiative will inject a real sense of community spirit into a lively part of the city.
The launch and regular market will take place along the Watershed’s covered walkway on Bordeaux Quay, part of Bristol’s historic Harbourside, leading off the city’s Centre Promenade.
The Royal Wedding in Millennium Square
On 29th April (weather permitting) you’ll be able to sit back and enjoy Kate and Wills get hitched in Bristol’s very own Millennium Square. Why not take a picnic and some champagne, to toast the happy couple in style!
