Your Guide to Bristol in September
The end of Summer is nigh but hopefully we’ll see some of that lovely September weather coming our way. As always, there are so many things going on in Bristol, so here are a few favourites for the coming month.
It’s been a great Summer of Bristol’s ‘Make Sunday Special’ and we are now coming to the last one of the year. From 11am – 5pm on Sunday 7th September you’ve got a huge variety of things going on in the Corn Street, Small Street and Old City areas. Try your hand at swing dancing; get your kids involved with some recycling fun with the Children’s Scrap Store or just sit and lounge about on the street sofas provided by Emmaus Bristol. Don’t miss out or you’ll have to wait until next year!
‘Bodacious beers, fine wines and vibrant fresh foods’ – tempting? Of course it is! Millennium Square will be playing host to the wonderful Grape and Grain Festival from 11th-14th September. Buy your early bird tickets now for a weekend of great food and drink, workshops and classes. There’s even going to be a Bristol cake baking competition being judged by the lovely Frances Cooley at Clifton Cakes. If you fancy making the most of the weekend, come and stay with us, we can offer you Grape & Grain Festival discounted rates!
So you’ve had a crazy 6 weeks or so with the kids but now it’s time to treat yourself. How about a spa day at the Lido? Start your day with a hot stone massage, followed by a swim in their outdoor pool and a dip in the Jacuzzi. If you don’t fancy making a whole day of it, you could try our three hour Clifton Relaxation Centre package or pop over to Michael’s Hill and visit our friends at Therapy Hair and Medispa for an afternoon of pampering! Go on, treat yourself.
With Picnic Cinema’s arrival at Leigh Woods it got me thinking about Bristol’s different independent cinemas. Next time you fancy popping over to Cabot Circus to watch the latest rom-com, why not try The Watershed by the Harbourside or The Cube Cinema in Stokes Croft instead? There is so much to see, from film, music and performance talks. Both of these venues will be showcasing for the Encounters Film Festival which is taking place 16th-21st Sept and there are some great things you really don’t want to miss out on!
