Must See Monday – Events of the Week

1st February 2015



What: Window Wanderland // Where: Bishopston // When: Saturday 7th Feb (5-8pm) // Cost: Free

The people of Bishopston look to make a play for the most novel community project of 2015 thus far with a brand new event where residents themselves create a walking trail of displays.

Imagine walking around your streets at night seeing your neighbours windows and gardens in a whole new light! What goes into these displays is completely up to everyone. It could be a lounge lit by candles; your art in the window; a display of your favourite books, or a projected film.

The  printed map will be available at outlets along the Gloucester Road.

The Life and Times of Fanny Hill @ Bristol Old Vic // Thurs 5th Feb – 7th Mar


Based on John Cleland’s (in)famous novel, which was published in 1748 but banned from sale soon afterwards, this adaptation by April de Angelis (current National Theatre Writer in Residence) charts Fanny Hill’s fall into prostitution and rise to notoriety. 

Directed by Michael Oakley (Chichester Festival Theatre) and with original music composed by Pete Flood from award winning folk ensemble Bellowhead, the production features a cast of six: Caroline Quentin (Jonathan Creek, Men Behaving Badly), Phoebe Thomas (Holby City), Gwyneth Keyworth (Misfits), Rosalind Steele, Nick Barber and Mawgan Gyles.
