A guide to the theatre in Bristol

For those of us lucky enough to call Bristol our home, we’re blessed with an exciting and frankly impressive range of theatres and performances to choose from. Whether you’re looking for classic Shakespearean tragedy or boundary-pushing work from new artists, Bristol is where it’s at.

The theatre options in Bristol are so varied and such high quality that you could bounce from theatre to theatre taking in great performances at every turn. In fact, I’ve just written a blog for Visit Bristol explaining how to do just that! Check it out and let me know what you think – do you agree with my theatre choices? Are there any others you’d have included?

The weather makes travellers of us all

The rooftops, the ground, the treetops glimmer and sparkle in the pale yellow streetlight. The world glows, even though the sun won’t be up for another hour; like an expectant mother, radiance comes from within. All is pristine, a clean new slate.

I thought this fitted in nicely with the ‘Warmth’ theme: the sun, just setting in the sky, is throwing out its last few warming rays, and highlights the dog’s warm golden coat. Of course the dog’s breath on the left of the image is warm and clashes against the cold afternoon air creating the wisp of breath before her. And last but not least there’s the warm, expectant gaze of the dog towards its master, just out of the shot, and the yummy treat that awaits!

Hope you’ve all had a lovely Monday, enjoy your dog walking today, and may it be sunny (if cold!) with you as well!
