Members of In Bristol Studio are really excited to be involved with the Barton Hill Festival this year. Participatory artist Kerry will be working with Travelling light Youth Theatre; Lantern Parade producers Dee Moxon and Amy Peck will be facilitating the celebratory parade; and artists Bianca Pardhy-Avis and Stephanie Tudor will be working with visitors on the day to produce a large 3D map of the area out of junk!
Barton Hill Festival is a celebratory family friendly festival of live performance, art, wellbeing and film which takes place on Sunday 29th October 2017 in Barton Hill.
The festival is delivered in partnership with Travelling Light Theatre Company, Barton Hill Settlement and Up Our Street and the programme is packed with a range of performances, culturally diverse activities and food from around the world.
The partners are also delighted to announce that this – the first Barton Hill Festival – will be supported by both The Big Lottery Fund’s Awards For All scheme and Bristol City Council’s Community Festival and Events Fund. This support will go towards the exciting programme of events including: a professional play inspired by Barton Hill’s history, workshops for all ages including drama, craft, wellbeing, complimentary therapies, singing and dance, storytelling from around the world culminating in a twilight lantern parade by local schools and artists.
There will also be a sensory exploration room for young people with additional needs which will play specially designed films by local film maker Camilla Adams. There really is something for everyone, so this autumn why not join your local community for a fun and inspiring day celebrating the brilliantly diverse people of Barton Hill, Bristol.
