Summer is right on our doorstep, so we’ve been looking at some fun things happening in and around the city to keep us entertained. And for this PR agency there’s no shortage of that in Bristol.
Instead of sharing 5 webinars or events that we’re attending this month, we want to share 5 of our favourite finds from Bristol businesses and organisations …
The Bristol Pantry
While we’ve been busy queueing outside the supermarkets, the team at Wriggle have been busy creating a new food and drink home delivery service, to supply Bristol with goods and help small businesses stay on their feet. The Bristol Pantry hosts all kinds of products, from organic meat from Popti & Beast to fresh fruit and veg from Ceres Veg Box. The best bit? All partners and produce are based locally, so you can support Bristol businesses while you shop.
Banksy Bristol Trail
Once again, Banksy is putting Bristol on the map, literally. Hats off to cactus apps, because this is cool. Very cool. The Banksy Trail app is an interactive map that guides you on a virtual tour around Banksy’s artworks in Bristol. Featuring his new and old pieces such as Valentine and The Girl with the Pierced Eardrum, the app also provides descriptions of every piece on the trail and transport details to help you get around. Give it a go while the weather is still hot! Download the app here.
Flipside’s Cocktails 2 You
This is a public service announcement. As of last month, Flipside bar is delivering cocktails to our doors. For £30 you can get a Cocktail Box which contains 6 cocktails of your choice from their menu. Top choices include a classic mojito as well as unique creations like a pineapple margarita. It’s worth mentioning that they’re offering nationwide delivery not just Bristol inner city postcodes – which means cocktails for everyone! Heads up, you’ll need to order by Wednesday for a Friday tipple, order and browse the menu here.
Green space city living
Bristol has over 400 gardens and parks, so we’ll be taking the opportunity to get out and about to enjoy some of the green space that’s right on our doorstep. Visit Bristol has listed some of the most popular Bristol parks or if you want to explore some lesser-known green spaces, Bristol Parkhive is a free app which uses GPS to identify parks near you, you can also search for particular facilities/characteristics (dog friendly, riverside).
And if you fancy just sitting on a sofa, don’t forget to tune into the BBC for a Bristol edition of A House Through Time …
BBC 2 – A House Through Time
The hit BBC 2 series A House Through Time is back on our screens, representing Bristol! The show is presented by Bristol-based historian David Olusoga and the 4-part series will look through the history of 18th century Bristol right up to the present day – but through the story of 10 Guinea Street in Redcliffe. Episode 1 is out and we’ve already explored stories of the houses involvement in the slave trade and pirates. Watch the series on BBC iPlayer here.
