Water City Bristol Loves Tides!
In conjunction with community groups Friends of the Avon New Cut, and Friends of Lamplighters Marsh, we are involved in two events coming up in October, on the 2nd and the 15th.
The October 2nd event will take place from 1-5pm at and around Temple School (click here for travel directions)
This event is in celebration of 10 years of the community group Friends of the Avon New Cut, and will be a great celebration of the tidal river Avon as it flows through the new cut.
Activities on the day will include live music, tea and cake, short talks by FrANC and Water City Bristol, screening of a fun short film about "Proxi and Peri", the tides made flesh (otherwise known as the mudmen), a walk along the New Cut and craft activities for adults and children, including the amazing print bike run by Nick Hand of the Letterpress Collective.
There may also be an opportunity to view a boat sculpture made by the local community from Redcliffe flats, which will be on display in the Redcliffe Children's Centre.
All welcome! Show up for the whole event or drop in on the day. A full programme of details will be released shortly.
On October 15th we'll be having a second event, this time at the Lamplighter's Pub in Shirehampton (directions here). This event, being held in conjunction with the Friends of Lamplighters Marsh will also involve live music by a great local band, the print bike and more!
Activities will start at 3pm and go until after the high tide at 7:30pm.
All welcome! Come join us in celebrating the people and places, tides and rivers, and this watery city...
