...101 things 01 to 31

We’ve decided to celebrate this landmark edition by giving you a list of 101 hidden gems in Bristol. We’ve scoured the city and beyond to give you a list of cool things, many of which only the locals know about; brilliant places to visit, restaurants to try and days out to enjoy. Our list is by no means comprehensive – but these are our favourites. Send your suggestions to epletters@bepp.co.uk. Our 101 things start over the page. What are you waiting for? from Friday, April 25, 2014

●●●●● INDEX 3


01 DRINK UP THE HARE ■ People bemoan the loss of old boozers, as they are turned into coffee shops or wine bars, but if they remain a pub, that’s all right with us. The team that opened the Hare, on North Street, took over the closed Full Moon, and have turned it into a shrine to decent ales, whisky and conversation. There’s no food on offer, but there are plenty of vintage armchairs. ■ 51 North Street, Bedminster, BS3 1EN. Tel: 0117 966 5740; www.theharepub.co.uk.

SPANISH DELICACIES EL COLMADO

■ Bristol foodies are well served when it comes to award-winning delicatessens and the latest addition to the scene is El Colmado. Run by David Pavon, this small Gloucester Road shop is an Aladdin’s cave of specialist Spanish products you won’t find anywhere else in the city. It has become especially popular with Bristol’s growing community of Spanish students, who head here to stock up on hams, cheese, olives, chorizo, paella rice, Padron peppers and calçots (Catalan spring onions). The shop even sells ham-carving knives and paella-making equipment and it’s also one of the few places where you can find the artisan blue cheese Cabrales, made in the Asturian mountains. ■ 57 Gloucester Road, Bristol, BS7 8AD. Tel: 0117 924 9776.

PERFECT PATTIES BURGER JOINT

3

■ Dan Bekhradnia spotted a gap in the market when he launched Burger Joint five years ago. It may have been at the height of the recession, but the Bristol University graduate identified a growing trend for high-quality versions of fast food favourites. The burgers at Burger Joint may be more expensive than your average Maccy D quarter pounder, but Bekhradnia uses only the best ingredients, including meat from Clifton’s Ruby & White butchers and burger buns made by local bakery Proper Bread. Burger Joint has proved so successful that it opens a second site in Bedminster next month. ■ The Burger Joint, 83 Whiteladies Road, Bristol, BS8 2NT. Tel: 0117 329 0887; www.theburgerjoint.co.uk.

04

DETOX BLUE JUICE

■ Tucked beneath a natural health clinic, Blue Juice was one of Bristol’s first juice bars and it’s still one of the best. This colourful and laid-back café on Cotham Hill, which also pops up at festivals during the summer, serves lunchtime wraps, salads and quesadillas, but it’s the range of freshly prepared, uber-healthy juices and smoothies that draws a crowd, particularly with hungover students looking to eradicate the excesses of the night before. If the Terminator Hangover Detox (apple, celery, ginger and milk thistle) doesn’t sort you out, the Code Red Liver Cleanse (beetroot, carrot, celery and greens) should. ■ 39 Cotham Hill, Bristol, BS6 6JY.

MESSY FOOD GRILLSTOCK SMOKEHOUSE

■ Grillstock started life as a barbecue and music festival in Bristol’s Harbourside (it’s back in June with Fun Lovin’ Criminals headlining) and it has rapidly become something of a national brand. Grillstock’s original barbecue pit stall in St Nicholas Market is still going strong and it has now spawned the Smokehouse, where 30 diners at a time sit elbow-to-elbow at one long table and tuck into “slow and low” 18-hour hickory smoked pulled pork, hot dogs and sticky ribs. Noisy, buzzy, messy and certainly not a place to dress up in your best bib and tucker (or take your gran), this is a place to get down and dirty. ■ 41 Triangle West, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 1ER. Tel: 0117 927 3200; www.grillstock.co.uk.

07

WRAP UP EDNA’S KITCHEN

■ Bristol seems to have gone falafel crazy in recent years and there are countless places serving stuffed pitta breads, but Edna’s Kitchen is the real wrap deal. Chef Edna Yeffet Summerell used to run a café at St Stephen’s Church just off Corn Street, but since last September she moved Edna’s Kitchen to a small kiosk in Castle Park. All the food here is vegetarian and dishes are either Middle Eastern or Mediterranean. The menu is concise, with just half a dozen options each day, and most dishes are around the £4 mark. If the halloumi wraps with hummus, jalapenos and relish don’t tempt you, the mezze salad boxes certainly will. ■ Castle Park, Bristol. Tel: 07928 436212; www.ednas-kitchen.com.

ARTISAN COFFEE THE OLD CITY

5

06 SUSTAINABLE SUSTENANCE POCO ■ The mantra at this rustic Stokes Croft bar and restaurant is “90 per cent British, ten per cent EU, 100 per cent seasonal”, which is probably why it was awarded three gold stars by the Sustainable Restaurant Association and why it won the title of Best Ethical Restaurant in last year’s Observer Food Monthly Awards. The menu here lists every single producer and supplier and although the olive oil isn’t local, it’s painstakingly sourced from Spain, where they even burn the olive pips to power the village. None of this would really matter if the food wasn’t good but it is – so good, in fact, that owner/chef Tom Hunt’s first cookbook is published next month. ■ 45 Jamaica Street, Bristol, BS2 8JP. Tel: 0117 923 2233; www.tomsfeast.com/restaurants/pocobristol.

■ Bristol is currently enjoying a coffee revolution thanks to a small but perfectly formed cluster of independent cafés showcasing high-quality coffees from artisan roasters. These specialist coffee shops are a world away from high street brands serving bucketsized skinny lattes with marshmallows. Chris Chubb and John Drysdale opened Small Street Espresso opposite Bristol Crown Court just over a year ago and it has been an instant success, quickly followed by Matt North’s equally fine Full Court Press around the corner. Both produce brilliant coffee using Italian-made La Marzocco espresso machines. There’s also smooth, full-bodied filter coffee. Just don’t ask for a caramel frappuccino. ■ Full Court Press, 59 Broad Street, Bristol, BS1 2EJ. Tel: 07794 808552; www.fcpcoffee. com; Small Street Espresso, 23 Small Street, Bristol, BS1 1DW. www.smallstreetespresso.co.uk.

BRUNCH BAKERS & CO ■ With its white walls, daffodil-yellow crockery and light and airy feel, the newly opened Bakers & Co has brought a touch of sunny Sydney-meets-California to Gloucester Road. This no-bookings, daytime-only café from the same team behind Bravas has become an immediate hit, with locals queuing out the door for a table. Bread is the main thing here, or more specifically the sourdough baked on the premises in the open kitchen. It might pop up toasted with a topping of salted chocolate spread and hazelnuts, or slathered with avocado, chilli, lime and coriander. The spicy baked egg dish huevos rancheros is already the brunch of choice for discerning BS7 locals. ■ 193 Gloucester Road, Bristol, BS7 8BG. No phone; www.bakersbristol.co.uk.

AL FRESCO PINT BEESE’S

AFTERNOON TEA THE TEA BIRDS

11

■ Since it opened last November, this vintagethemed tearoom has become the go-to venue for an old-school afternoon tea. Run by former UWE fashion students Anna Ritchie and Jodie Johnson, The Tea Birds ticks all the right retro boxes, with floral crockery like your nan’s, teetering cake stands and loose teas served in the time-honoured tradition, with strainers, sugar bowls and milk jugs. Both sweet and savoury afternoon teas are served here and they include homemade scones, classic sandwiches (think cheese and pickle or ham and mustard), slices of Victoria sponge and pots of tea. Your mug of teabag Tetley’s will never taste the same again.

■ When the sun shines, it doesn’t get much better than a relaxing pint in the tranquil riverside garden of Beese’s. Opened in 1846 to provide refreshments to travellers using the Conham Ferry, the oldest river ferry crossing on the River Avon, Phil and Lindy Leahy took over this unique place in 2006. Open seasonally from Good Friday until the last weekend of September, Beeses is accessible by road via Brislington or via the Conham Ferry. As well as excellent local beers and ciders, a full food menu is available; the burgers are the stuff of local legend. Look out for the ticket-only September beer and music festival.

CUSTARD TARTS HART’S

■ Squirrelled away beneath Temple Meads station in a Victorian railway arch, Hart’s Bakery has become one of the hubs of Bristol’s ever-growing food scene. Baker Laura Hart previously worked in some of the city’s best restaurants before going it alone and she has gained a national reputation for her bread, particularly the sourdough, which can be bought directly from the open-plan bakery, with its small but perfectly formed café. During the week, you can enjoy savoury delights such as pork, onion and fennel sausage rolls, but those in the know form an orderly queue on Thursday, Friday and Saturday for Laura’s legendary, deep and wobbly custard tarts. ■ Arch 35 Lower Approach Road, Temple Meads, Bristol, BS1 6QS.

TART OF THE DAY TART CAFÉ

MATCH OF THE DAY B E L L’ S D I N E R AND BAR ROOMS

THE FULL ENGLISH SOURCE

■ An iconic Bristol restaurant since 1976, Bell’s Diner was taken over in 2013 by an energetic new team with years of experience in notable restaurants across the city. More informal and tapas-bar in style than before, chef Sam Sohn-Rethel’s robust, seasonal Mediterranean food has already won the applause of national restaurant critics thanks to dishes like ox heart with beetroot and horseradish, and clams, mussels, pancetta, wild garlic and cream. The daily changing menu is complemented by a vibrant wine list complete with “match of the day” suggestions – perhaps quail, grapes and cobnuts with Chilean Cinsault, or venison and red wine ragu with a glass of Cotes du Rhone.

■ The granola-nibbling health police may have tried to kill off Bristol’s much-loved traditional greasy spoon cafés, but there are still a few places left where you can start the day with a hearty full English – and Source serves one of the best brekkies in the city. At £8.50, it might not be the cheapest fry-up around, but you get what you pay for and this quality food hall doesn’t cut corners – they even make the black pudding, sausages and baked beans themselves. If a gut-busting plate of meat, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes and buttered toast isn’t your style, you can always have a kipper on toast, or pancakes topped with maple syrup.

■ Since it opened in 2008, Tart has seen plenty of new cafés open around Gloucester Road, but such is its local following that it’s still packed all day every day, despite increased competition. Owner Andrew Griffin worked for legendary Bristol chef Stephen Markwick for several years and he just seems to know exactly what people want to eat. Open all day for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, it’s the daily selection of homemade tarts that really sets this bustling neighbourhood café apart. Recent best-sellers have included English asparagus with wild garlic and Parmesan, and smoked salmon, watercress and horseradish – all encased in the crumbliest, butteriest pastry.

TAPAS BRAVAS

■ Husband and wife team Kieran and Imogen Waite have recreated their own little corner of Barcelona in this buzzy tapas bar. What began as a pop-up supper club run from the couple’s flat has become one of Bristol’s coolest eateries. Order from a concise daily changing menu that might include fried duck egg, chanterelles and Jamon, or Iberico pork cooked on the plancha grill. Leave some room for the handmade salted chocolate truffles.

SWIM AND DINE THE LIDO

■ This Victorian open-air lido in the heart of Clifton was closed for 20 years and the site earmarked for demolition and redevelopment until local residents campaigned against it and the Glass Boat Company saved it in 2006. Restored to its former glory with a new spa, restaurant and poolside bar, the Lido reopened two years later and it has been one of Bristol’s top dining experiences ever since, thanks to head chef Freddy Bird’s seasonal Middle East-meets-Mediterranean food. Especially popular are the “swim and eat” packages, allowing use of the pool, sauna, steam room and hot tub before enjoying a meal in the restaurant. ■ Oakfield Place, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 2BJ. Tel: 0117 933 9530; www.lidobristol.com.

TAKEAWAY CURRY TIFFINS

■ A Bristol institution for the past 11 years, Tiffins puts most Indian takeaways to shame. Nick and Jay Jethwa specialise in authentic Gujarati food, which uses less oil and butter than the more Anglicised Indian dishes and has no artificial colours or flavouring. Although you can eat at the café’s solitary table, you can also buy the dishes cold to reheat at home. The minced lamb and rice comes highly recommended, as does the homemade coriander and chilli chutney, and there are plenty of vegetarian options.

■ Frank and Petra Deane got the idea for this family-run coffee business when they worked in Japan and a one-man roasters opened near their local train station. For these two passionate coffee drinkers, the freshness of the beans is the key to a great cup and the name of their roasters refers to the fact that none of the coffees they sell in their shop were roasted more than two days previously. The choice of beans changes every day, but regulars include an Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, or the Finca La Fany 100 per cent Red Bourbon from El Salvador.

■ An unmarked, graffiti-daubed door sandwiched between two empty shops, Bristol’s coolest new cocktail joint is certainly well hidden. There is no sign outside, just a flashing red light and payphone entry system that enables staff to separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to nocturnal drinkers. This stylish new bar is run by Richard Tring, one of the best bartenders in the country. Styled on a speakeasy with more than a hint of 1940s brothel about it, Red Light offers a comprehensive list of expertly made cocktails – everything from “classics” to “nightcaps” – complemented by a range of craft ales and lagers. Chin chin.

■ Walk into Bristol Sweet Mart and you are engulfed by the alluring smell of spices and exotic fruits. Started by the Majothi family in 1978 as a single shop feeding local taxi drivers, Sweet Mart has become an international business and now sells more than 8,000 different products, from tahini from Lebanon to mangoes from Pakistan and dates from Iran. Extend your trip by visiting the in-house deli/café, with its reasonably priced, authentic Indian curries and snacks to eat in or take away.

FIELD TO FORK THE COW BARN KITCHEN

■ The clue is in the name, but the Cow Barn Kitchen occupies the original cattle stalls of the restored Victorian farm buildings at National Trust-owned Tyntesfield estate. Grab a space at one of the tables next to stone drinking troughs where the cows used to feed and tuck into a menu that showcases local and seasonal food, including produce grown in Tyntesfield’s walled garden and cheese and meat from tenant farmers. If you visit this weekend (Saturday and Sunday, April 26-27) look out for the free-to-enter “meet our suppliers” event featuring wild garlic cookery demonstrations and Q and A sessions with the chefs and producers.

SHEEPWAY MEATS PORTISHEAD

SALT BEEF BAGEL BAGEL BOY

■ Sheepway Meats is raved about by those who enjoy top quality meat and care about animal welfare and food miles. Opened in 2007 to fill the gap for a butcher’s shop catering for the growing population of Portishead, it sources its meat as locally as possible from farms where traditional methods are used to raise the animals to make them fit for the table. Sheepway Meats offers everything from beef and pork to chicken and duck and burgers and faggots, and all the meat can be cut to your exact requirements by the experienced and friendly staff.

■ Once the preserve of New York delis and 24-hour bakeries in London’s East End, you can now chow down on hot salt beef bagels in the heart of Bristol’s old banking district. Mitch Church and Leo Thompson started Bagel Boy as a temporary pop-up in Park Street and opened permanently in St Nicholas Street last October. There are about 20 different bagels on offer, but it’s the signature New York Boy (hot salt beef, sauerkraut, gherkins, mustard) that has them queuing out the door every lunchtime. ■ 39-41 St Nicholas Street, Bristol, BS1 1TP.

KEBAB DAY KOOKOOTOO

28

FRESH FISH CORN STREET FARMERS’ MARKET

■ Recently relocated from its original Gloucester Road home, this Iranian-run café/restaurant specialises in the sort of fragrant, delicately spiced food you might expect to find in a bustling Persian market rather than a row of shops on Filton Avenue. During the week, Kookootoo serves delicious and affordable dishes such as minced lamb patties, fish curry with tamarind and aubergine stew, but it is at the weekend when this friendly place really comes into its own, particularly on Sunday’s “kebab day” when the restaurant is packed with a mix of locals and Iranian families ordering from a special menu that includes the popular kebab-e-choobi – a kebab of smoky chicken and spicy minced lamb.

■ The number of high street fishmongers may be dwindling, but that’s no excuse to stop cooking fish and seafood at home. Fish day may be traditionally on a Friday, but why not make it a Wednesday instead and queue at one of the fresh fish stalls at the weekly Corn Street farmers’ market. The Dorset-based Hand Picked Shellfish Company was set up by former scallop divers Matthew Baldwin and Steve Hall in 2001 and what sets their business apart from most fish stalls is the fact they have their own boats, which means the shellfish and fish they bring to Corn Street every Wednesday is as fresh as it gets, often caught a few hours before.

BACON ROLLS MRS BROWN’S

■ Emily Filose used to be a customer at this mobile café in Victoria Park, but when the former owners decided to sell up, she jumped at the chance of inheriting the title of Mrs Brown. Next to the old park-keeper’s lodge near the Somerset Terrace and Nutgrove Avenue entrances to the park, Mrs Brown’s is open seven days a week throughout the summer and there are tables and chairs under the huge trees opposite. Serving excellent bacon rolls, toasties, homemade cakes, good coffee and ice lollies for the kids, it’s popular with dog walkers, joggers and a godsend for dog-tired parents of toddlers using the adjacent children’s play area. ■ Top of Victoria Park, Bristol, BS3 4QF. No phone, but follow on Twitter @MrsBrownsCafe.

CRAFT ALES SMALL BAR

■ In the past year, Bristol has seen a raft of new craft ale bars and pubs open, many of them around King Street, an area that has been dubbed the “Beer-muda Triangle” by a few cheeky locals. King Street now has three craft ale havens – the Beer Emporium, The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer and, most recently, Small Bar. Small Bar has a jaw-dropping range of 24 beers on tap, many from tiny microbreweries. This Sunday (April 27), Small Bar’s taps will be taken over by London’s Redchurch Brewery and Cornwall’s Harbour Brewing Co., which will also be launching a collaborative new Belgian IPA at a ticket-only tasting event starting at 4pm. ■ 31 King Street, Bristol, BS1 4DZ.

PANCAKES THE CREPE & COFFEE CABIN

30

STEAKS THE OX

■ Measuring a mere 13ft 6in by 8ft, it may well be Bristol’s cosiest café, but The Crepe and Coffee Cabin certainly punches above its weight when it comes to flippin’ good pancakes. Once a florist and a newsagents, this red-brick outlet on Prince Street Bridge serves up to 20 different sweet and savoury crepes, from classic lemon and sugar and “Utterly Nutella” to toppings of ham, bacon, or chicken. Thin, lacy and crisp on the edges, the crepes are made to order on the hot griddle and folded into cone shapes for ease of eating. Never has a simple combination of flour, eggs and milk been so enjoyable.

■ In just six months, The Ox has quickly established itself as one of Bristol’s most exciting new restaurants, already picking up glowing reviews. This subterranean cocktails-and-steak joint is run by the same team behind the eye-wateringly hip Milk Thistle bar and it shares a similarly high level of service and attention to detail. Although the menu features plenty for fish lovers and veggies, steaks grilled over charcoal are the main reason to come here – all supplied by local butcher Nigel Buxton. There are usually five cuts of steak available, but our tip is to go for the melt-in-the-mouth 6oz D Rump.

DAYS OUT HARBOURSIDE GEMS

■ It’s hardly news to say a stroll around Bristol’s Harbourside is enjoyable, but are you walking past some treats without realising? There’s the Olive Shed just past the cranes, the cut through to the Chocolate Path that lets you walk alongside the River Avon before cutting back to the Harbourside by the Cottage Inn, Brunel’s Buttery (best bacon sandwiches in the city) and the Pump House, which serves legendary Sunday lunches.

BEST VIEW PORTBURY WHARF WALK

■ Once scattered with ash from a redundant coal-fired power station, Portbury Wharf is now a haven for wildlife and a truly unique spot for a beautiful walk. Portbury Wharf lies on the land between Portishead and Royal Portbury Dock, adjacent to the Severn Estuary. Planning consent for the Port Marine housing development there was granted on condition that the developers designate a nature reserve on the adjoining land. Today, walkers can enjoy taking in the stunning views of the Bristol Channel and spotting great-crested newts, otters, woodpeckers, curlew, hawks, dragonflies and water voles – Britain’s most threatened animal.

DAYS OUT CITY FARMS

St Werburgh’s may have the biggest of the farms inside the city boundary, but there’s also one at Windmill Hill, and there’s Grimsbury Farm in Kingswood, plus others in Hartcliffe and Lawrence Weston. Many of them have cafés, and all provide the chance for us urban folk to learn how nature works, and where our produce comes from.

34 DAYS OUT GET ON YOUR BIKE

■ Now this is a touchy subject, but we’re not talking about taking your life in your hands along Gloucester Road, or through the city centre. As you’d expect from Britain’s first Cycling City, there are plenty of routes in and around Bristol that you can pedal along without having to deal with heavy traffic. The Festival Way, which links South Bristol/Ashton Court with the North Somerset countryside, or the Bristol to Bath Railway Path are two such routes that are worth checking out.

DAYS OUT GLOUCESTER ROAD

■ The traffic jams may be a nightmare, and cycling down it is not for the faint-hearted, but if you’re on foot and have time to kill, there are few better spots in the city to while away the hours popping into the independent shops, having a slow drink in pubs like the Bristol Flyer, The Wellington or The Golden Lion, or just smelling the burgers being cooked just down from Tesco, as a long queue of salivating customers forms. There are some great places to eat and watch the world go by, such as the Gallimaufry or Tart.

DAYS OUT ST ANDREW’S PARK

■ Surrounded by the sorts of houses that estate agents can sell without opening their mouths, this park offers the good folk of Bishopston, St Andrew’s and Montpelier the chance to throw a frisbee, lie back on the grass and study the clouds or take a dip in the paddling pool (when it’s got water in it). The organised Christmas carols event there is one of the official signals that it’s the season to be jolly.

DAYS OUT OLD DUKE JAZZ FESTIVAL

■ If there’s one thing in the city’s busy and varied calendar to put a smile on your face, it’s the sight of a packed King Street in the sun during this summer highlight. If the weather’s kind and the music’s flowing, there isn’t anywhere better to be. This year’s line-up is not set in stone but it’s going ahead on the weekend of August 23-25.

DAYS OUT NORTH STREET

DAYS OUT PORTISHEAD LAKE GROUNDS

■ It’s hard to believe it if you look in the local estate agents’ windows, but Southville was once considered a bit rough. Now houses here sell quicker than you can order a glutenfree loaf of bread. But you don’t have to live in BS3 to enjoy the pleasures of North Street, from the Tobacco Factory (and let’s give George Ferguson credit for starting this revolution of gentrification) to Souk Kitchen, The (original) Lounge, Cafe Sazz, the Hen and Chicken, Mark’s Bread, Rare butchers and recent arrival Zazu’s Kitchen.

■ One of Portishead’s best family attractions is the scenic Lake Grounds, situated on the banks of the Severn estuary. Built in the early 20th century around an artificial lake, the Lake Grounds is the town’s main park. A popular day out for all, the summer months see families hiring rowing boats, model boat enthusiasts gathering with their radio-controlled boats, kids having fun in the colourful play areas and sports fans playing football and cricket on the grass. Visitors can also enjoy feeding the ducks and swans and tuck into a picnic or some refreshments from the welcoming café. An open air pool, tennis courts, pebble beach, woodland walks and stunning views from Portishead Point are a stone’s throw away.

DAYS OUT UPFEST

40

■ It’s taking a break this year, but let’s hope it returns in 2015. Sure, it polarises opinion, but something that brings thousands of people to the area and transforms some very drab-looking buildings into colourful, fun murals can’t be so bad. The downside, of course is that you do have to put up with lots of trendy Londoners bashing you with their camera lenses. And although the festival isn’t happening this year, its base – the shop on North Street, Bedminster – is now a permanent fixture. ■ www.upfest.co.uk

DAYS OUT VICTORIA PARK

■ People get excited about the Downs in Clifton but, in truth, this area is guilty of being flat and featureless. Straddling a rise between Windmill Hill and Totterdown, Victoria Park is a thing of beauty, where dog walkers rule by day, and in springtime before 9am commuters on foot or bike pause among the blossom and flowers and wish they weren’t going to work. There’s even a funky café, play areas aplenty and a basketball court.

DAYS OUT STREET ART

42

■ It’s not all about Banksy – although let’s give the man some credit for giving what was considered criminal a bit of style. You can check out his more famous works at the bottom of Park Street or on the side of The Canteen in Stokes Croft. Meanwhile, Bedminster and Southville’s annual Upfest event has made the sides of shops and pubs along North Street a treat for the eyes (although not everyone agrees). If you really want some exciting Bansky stuff, head out to Easton to see some of his early works.

43

DAYS OUT BREWERY THEATRE ■ It may be the younger cousin of the bigger, more established Tobacco Factory Theatre across the road, but Southville’s Brewery is still a great one-stop shop for a night out. You can have a pre-show meal at the Mark’s Bread café next door and, being a brewery, a pint isn’t hard to come by either. The smaller, more experimental shows are generally tried out here, but you may well catch an absolute gem.

DAYS OUT TYNTESFIELD

DAYS OUT GO ALOFT AT SS GREAT BRITAIN

■ A short drive from Bristol is this stunning Gothic mansion set in spectacular grounds. If you want to save a few quid, just pay the fee to see the grounds and gardens, but the house is worth a look if you’re feeling flush. The Gibbs family, who lived here, collected hundreds of trees, so you can thank them for the look of the place.

■ You need a head for heights to take this on, but Bristol’s favourite ship has a new attraction this summer. Under the enticing title of “Go Aloft!” (or should that be “hold on tight and pray”?) you can head up the rigging and check out the view from the yardarm – more than 30 metres up the mainmast.

■ Bristol’s well known for its parks, but few can boast a large aviary full of budgies and finches, a sensory garden (scented plants, textured surfaces and chimes), football pitches and tennis courts, play areas for young children and teens, a war memorial and a restored Victorian bandstand, not to mention the old clock tower. Now that’s a park for everyone, not just for dog walkers. Oh, and it’s in Staple Hill.

WEEKEND 17


47

BEST VIEW DUNDRY

■ Some cyclists like to punish their limbs by taking on the steep climb from Bristol via routes like Dundry Lane or Queen’s Road. Normal folk take the car. But however you reach the small village of Dundry, the view is ample reward. Dundry sits on a ridge, on one side of which you can stare down on Bristol, taking in vast chunks of the city. You can also see both Severn crossings from here. Head a few hundred yards the other way and you can savour the North Somerset countryside, and on a clear day, see the Mendip Hills. And for those who like that sort of thing, you can also get a great view of planes coming in to Bristol Airport, and rate the pilot’s ability to touch down smoothly.

49

48

BEST VIEW PERRETT PARK

■ Thousands gather in Ashton Court for the Bristol Balloon Fiesta every year (this year, August 7-10), but another piece of green space in the city is also rammed that weekend. Perrett Park, on the border of Totterdown and Knowle, is awash with families on picnic blankets during the mass ascent, because they know the colourful balloons will, more than likely, be carried right over their heads by the prevailing winds. But you don’t just have to visit this little green oasis during the fiesta to get a great view. From the highest point in the park, where it borders Sylvia Avenue, you can see Victoria Park and the city centre in the foreground, Ashton Gate and Ashton Court in the distance, and the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Houses on Sylvia Avenue don’t come up for sale very often, and when they do, they sell very quickly. Once you’ve seen this view, you will realise why.

BEST VIEW CABOT TOWER

■ When this iconic Bristol building was closed for repairs, the public were denied one of the best spots in the city to while away an hour counting how many different landmarks they could spy. In the foreground is the Floating Harbour, with the masts of the ss Great Britain likely to catch the eye. On a sunny day, the nearby Wills Memorial Building and Brandon Hill park positively sparkle, and even the imposing City Hall looks quite impressive. If the clouds stay away, you can also look across to Dundry, Lansdown and all points between. Cabot Tower is one of the few places, where, if you live in South Bristol, you can honestly say: “I can see my house from here.”

50

BEST VIEW LOOKOUT POINT ON CIRCULAR ROAD

■ Bit of a cliché this one, but it is a remarkable spot and, on a warm day, there’s usually an ice cream van parked here to give you something else to do besides admire the view. On a strip of land between Circular Road and the fence that stops you plunging into the Avon Gorge, most people look left to get a view of the Clifton Suspension Bridge but also glance down on any passing boats that might be taking advantage of a high tide. But look the other way and you can see the houses of Portishead tumbling down towards the sea (figuratively), the cranes of Avonmouth and, if you’re lucky, right across to Wales. Of course, on a summer weekend you can also rest your back against the fence and watch people on the Downs playing football, throwing a Frisbee or just walking a dog. For those with a mischievous streak, watch out for people lighting barbecues, and time the gap between the flames igniting and council officials arriving to tell them off.

DAYS OUT JOHN WESLEY’S CHAPEL

■ If you’ve ever longed for some peace and quiet amid the hustle and bustle of central Bristol then this elegant building and peaceful garden will suit you down to the ground. Built in 1739 by John Wesley, whose brother Charles was also a Bristol resident, this was the world’s first Methodist Chapel. You may have walked past its entrance many times without realising it’s there, but duck through the archway on the Horsefair between a nail bar and beauty parlour and you’ll find a scene so serene you’d be forgiven for forgetting you’re slap bang in the middle of Broadmead shopping centre. There’s a pretty garden where you can rest or read on a bench, but the interior of the chapel has to be seen to be believed.

BEST VIEW ASHTON COURT GOLF COURSE

■ Want a panoramic view from where you can almost see every inch of the city? Well, everyone knows Ashton Court, but this particular vantage point is a little off the beaten track. Go in to the estate at the Suspension Bridge entrance on the way to Leigh Woods. Follow the road up to the car park on the right (it’s £1 to park all day). There’s a path which leaves the car park, just to the right of the café. Follow this path for about 250 metres and there’s a big clump of trees. Walk around them, keeping the trees on your left, and you’ll see one of the holes of the golf course. Stand behind the red flag (assuming no one’s playing) and, weather permitting, you’ll get a great view stretching right across the city. Cabot Tower, the Bond buildings and Hotwells will leap out straight away. Because it’s such a wide panoramic vista, it’s one of those views you can only really appreciate in person. Photographs can never really do it justice.

52

DAYS OUT CLEVEDON PIER AND TEAROOM

■ Clevedon Pier has always been a favourite with locals and holidaymakers, but more recently it’s become a celebrity hang-out, featured in the Hollywood movie Never Let Me Go and a new video by teen heartthrobs One Direction! This Grade 1 listed Victorian marvel opened in 1869 and had its heyday when paddle steamers stopped here on their way up and down the Bristol Channel. Disaster struck in 1970 during load testing when it collapsed into the sea, making national headlines in the process. The pier reopened in 1998 and since then it has been a very popular attraction. In recent years, a tearoom has opened at the end of the pier, which might lay claim to the best views in the region, and plans are well under way for the construction of a stunning new visitor and education centre.

55

54

DAYS OUT PORTISHEAD SCULPTURE TRAIL

■ The regeneration of the old dockside and power station into Port Marine has transformed Portishead in the last decade. As part of the council’s decision to grant planning permission, lead developers Persimmon and Crest Nicholson committed to promoting culturally rich and sustainable forms of urban life, which included the installation of 30 pieces of public art. All the sculptures were inspired by the town’s rich history and they include eyecatching work like Lucy Glendinning’s Flying, Jon Buck’s Ship To Shore and Full Fathom Five by Dan Archer. A walk which takes in all of the sculptures, as well as the little-known nature reserve close to the Bristol Channel’s shoreline, can be downloaded from the website at www.publicartportishead.co.uk.

DAYS OUT ARNOS VALE

■ If you’ve never been, then the idea of walking around a cemetery as recreation might seem strange, possibly even sinister. But this is no ordinary cemetery. Bristol’s original burial ground, off the Bath Road, is now a beautiful wooded vale, with ornate gravestones and statues mixing with flowers and trees, thanks to a lot of hard work put in by volunteers. If the weather’s being unkind, there’s a café and an exhibition about the history of the cemetery. ■ www.arnosvale.org.uk

56 BEST VIEW BLAISE CASTLE CLIFFS ■ It’s not true to say the green space of Blaise Castle is unknown, but even many of the people who go there might not have had the experience of standing on the rocky outcrops above Hazel Brook. You have to remind yourself that you’re still in Bristol, and not in some valley in the Peak District.

A PROPER PINT THE ROYAL OAK, CLIFTON

61

■ No, we’re not repeating ourselves, this is the other Royal Oak, over in Clifton Village. Why not the Albion, The Mall, The Portcullis? All great Clifton pubs, but we have a soft spot for this one, as do its many loyal customers. It serves proper pub food (ploughmans’, baguettes, baked spuds and chilli) and knows what its fan base wants – Butcombe, Doom Bar and Tribute to name but three. There’s regular live music, too. ■ www.royaloakclifton.co.uk

62 57

58

■ This one only works if the weather’s good, but if you want to indulge in a traditional British summer pursuit and not pay a penny, then Bedminster Cricket Club is a great place to sit and enjoy leather on willow – with a great view thrown in. If the game isn’t taking your fancy, or it’s the tea or lunch interval, then simply lift your eyes and there is Clifton in all its glory – Suspension Bridge and Royal York Crescent gleaming in the sun. Turn the other way, and the tree-clad slopes of Ashton Court estate come into view. You can get there on foot and bike very easily from Bedminster and Southville – just follow the Festival Way.

■ Follow in the wake of Colonel “Mad” Jack Churchill, who made his own board and was the first to surf the bore in July 1955. The shape of the river Severn and the fact it has the third highest tidal range in the world creates one of longest rideable waves in the world.

DAYS OUT SEVERN BORE

■ The website www.thesevernbore.co.uk will tell you all you need to know about when and where to catch this wave, and the best places to spectate along the banks.

WINTER WONDER THE WINDMILL

■ Unless you live in Windmill Hill, this one is off the beaten track, but is worth going out of your way for. It’s particularly fine in the winter, when shaggy dogs – exhausted from walking round nearby Victoria Park – collapse in front of the roaring open fire, while their owners cast an eye at the beers on tap (many of the Bristol Beer Factory favourites) or the “top shelf” of whiskeys and spirits. There’s a family room where parents and their offspring can set up camp during the day, and plenty of snug corners to squeeze into with a pint and a good book. The food menu is constantly changing, but excellent pies are offered daily. ■ www.barwarsltd.com

DAYS OUT ST MARY REDCLIFFE

63

■ Elizabeth I once described this now 800-year-old church, which towers over Redcliffe Way close to the harbour, as “the fairest, goodliest and most famous parish church in England”. It is truly a breathtaking space to stand and marvel at the handiwork of architects, carpenters and stonemasons of years gone by. And yet thousands of people walk, drive or cycle past it every day without ever thinking about going inside. ■ For details of when the church is open to the public, see www.stmaryredcliffe.co.uk.

BEER IN THE GARDEN ROYAL OAK, GLOUCESTER ROAD

NIGHT OUT THE HIGHBURY VAULTS

■ You’ll find this one in the well-populated category of Bristol pubs that were once seen as being a bit rough, and are now packed to the rafters most evenings after being taken over and refurbished. It’s not in the most peaceful location, on the junction of Gloucester Road with Ashley Down Road, but has that rare thing for a city pub – a large beer garden. There’s always a decent range of ales on sale, and the food is great too. There are often one-off events, such as steak nights and a pie festival.

■ Being close to Bristol University, this place does attract a lot of students, but don’t let that colour your judgement as it’s still a Bristol institution that deserves its reputation as a great place for a night out. The inside is snug, with customers squeezed into the many corners or jostling for attention at the bar, but there is a spacious area out the back, where you can sip your pint amid the greenery. There is no loud music or TVs showing sport; this is a pub fit for a proper conversation, the way it should be.

■ Another one you’ll have to go out of your way to find, but you’ll be glad you did is The Barley Mow. On Barton Road in St Philip’s, it is a temple where fans of craft ales come to worship. The pub is effectively an offshoot of the Bristol Beer Factory, and promotes that brand, but also has other rare beers on tap, or on the guest list. Refurbished a year ago with the sort of eye-catching vintage furniture that makes hipsters come to blows in charity shops, it’s got a menu rich with local-sourced food and, if you’re a fan of cider, you won’t feel left out.

66

SHOPPING 20TH CENTURY FLICKS

■ Set up to celebrate some truly awful films that should have been thrown in the skip long before they made it to the screen, Bristol Bad Film Club’s founding principle was that bad cinema, like good cinema, should be shared. All profits from screenings go to charity.

■ You might bump your head on the way into this cavern of DVD delights on Clifton’s Richmond Terrace, but it’ll be worth the pain. Not only is the film library here comprehensive, the staff’s knowledge of movies has helped many a confused soul. You’ll barely have finished saying: “I’m looking for that film about a hitman – the one with Jean Reno and Natalie Portman,” and they’ll be pressing a copy of Leon into your hand.

CLUB NIGHTS THE BLACK SWAN

69

■ The Black Swan holds a special place in the hearts of Bristol’s ravers. A sprawling spit ’n’ sawdust pub with an enormous back yard, it’s regularly transformed into a DIY festival space right under the M32. The main room is notorious for its deadly levels of bass, a legacy of the venue’s long association with dub and reggae. The smaller upstairs rooms are a home for cutting edge, experimental or downright daft music. Some of Bristol’s most loved club nights have found a home here, from dubstep mecca Subloaded to psytrance wonderland Tribe of Frog, and it’s long been one of the main venues for harder dance styles from Toxic Dancehall to Neverlution and Jungle Syndicate. ■ 438 Stapleton Road, BS5 6NR.

With their pink outfits and infectious rhythms, they’re the essential splash of colour at many events in the city. ■ www.theamblingband.co.uk

NIGHTS OUT HORTS PUB

■ If you want to see a film, but don’t want to mingle with the usual cinema crowd, then a city centre pub offers a solution. Horts, in Broad Street, added a 26-seat cinema when it was refurbished last year. So it’s goodbye to having to glower at the people behind you because they’re on their phones, and hello to leather armchairs and eating a pizza made in the pub while you watch the movie. ■ www.hortsbristol.com

■ If you want a journey down memory lane to how cinema used to be, then take a trip to Clevedon. That’s not to say the Curzon doesn’t show current films, or that everything is in black and white, but the lovingly restored building is supported by local people and run as a charity.

■ You might think that anyone with a folding table and a microwave can “pop up” a café or restaurant, but sometimes it’s best to sit back and let the professionals do it. Kelly Sealey (you may have spied her on Channel 4’s The Taste) runs hers under the banner Pig and Swig. If you want to taste some seriously good grub in the company of fellow foodies in beautiful surroundings, the next one is at Maison Paradiso on Sunday, May 4.

■ Bristol’s Watershed was once a lone bastion of the arts in among the Friday and Saturday drinkers stumbling around the Harbourside. The area is slowly becoming more gentrified, while the Watershed still shows films that you won’t find anywhere else in the city. It’s also got a great restaurant and bar.

NIGHTS OUT TRINITY CENTRE

■ One day, one of the many noise complaints against Bristol’s floating nightclub/concert venue may succeed. Until then, make the most of this unique venue, which puts on some excellent club nights as well as hosting live music.

■ On the edge of Old Market and Easton, Trinity Centre fits snugly into Bristol’s live music scene. After a refit, this beautiful performance space has been enhanced, so expect more to follow Duran Duran, who played here in 2011.

NIGHTS OUT SMALLER VENUES

■ When was the last time you were able to see the colour of the lead singer’s eyes during a gig, or smell their perfume, or feel the air move as the drummer smashed the cymbals? There are plenty of venues in the city where you can get up close and personal with the band you’ve come to see. The Bristol Fringe in Clifton Village is one of the best, but also worth checking out are the Mother’s Ruin in the city centre, or the Thunderbolt, pictured, on Bath Road.

NIGHTS OUT QUIZ NIGHTS

■ There are plenty of quiz nights across the city, but if you want consistency, the Lounge Bars each run a quiz on Mondays. Be warned, it can be addictive, as you’ll be given a sneak preview of the following week’s theme at the end. Plus, the open plan layouts make it easy to spot anyone cheating on their smartphone. ■ www.thelounges.co.uk

■ Plenty of things in Bristol – the Floating Harbour, Arnos Vale, pubs too many to count – have been either preserved in the face of development, or restored after being allowed to fall into disrepair. Closed in the 1800s, the Clifton Arcade is now a rabbit warren of boutique shops topped off by the Primrose Café. You might not find a bargain here, but it’s one of those places where just walking around is pleasant enough in itself. There are 16 separate units to have a root around in, just be careful with your elbows – you might end up with a large bill if you knock anything over.

SHOPS MARK’S BREAD

■ It became fashionable a few years ago for restaurants to bring the mysteries of the kitchen into open-plan designs, so customers could see their food being made. Mark’s Bread, just down the street from the Tobacco Factory, follows this principle, so that upon opening the door your nostrils are immediately full of the smells of baking, and whatever you went there to buy suddenly becomes part of a longer list. A blackboard outside advertises the specials of the day and, like Joe’s Bakery, a long queue forms here in the hours after dawn. Last year a café was opened next door and, although compact, has quickly become one of the most popular places to eat on North Street. ■ 291 North Street, Southville, BS3 1JU.

SHOPS BISHOPSTON HARDWARE

SHOPS CLIFTON ARCADE

80 SHOPS HAROLD HOCKEY LTD

■ When people talk about the unique independent businesses of Gloucester Road, they mean places like Bishopston Hardware. It’s plain exterior belies the vast range of tools, screws, nails, mop buckets, door handles – you name it, they sell it. Why wander round a giant out-of-town DIY superstore hoping to find someone to help, when in this place, although you couldn’t call it cheap, the staff display an incredible knowledge about their stock. There’s even a workshop at the back where they’ll chop down pieces of wood to the exact size you need.

■ I wonder how many times the staff at this stationary shop at the top of Whiteladies Road have had to call the police to stop people who come in to sniff the paper. Plenty of places sell the items on offer in Harold Hockey, things like ink, paints, marker pens, scrapbooks, stencils etc, but there’s something magical about the place, and people find themselves taken back to their childhood as soon as they step through the door. This is a one-off to cherish, a throwback to when our high streets were dominated by independents and not chains.

SHOPS BRISTOL CINE

■ There are plenty of camera shops in Bristol, but this Aladdin’s cave of lenses, old and new cameras and associated kit is a joy to potter around, even if you know nothing about photography. As well as advice on what camera to buy, you can also get your digital pictures put on CD here and, more excitingly, have your old VHS videos made into DVDs – assuming there are no copyright issues. If you never venture south of the river, then make an exception for this one-off. ■ 246 North Street, Southville. Tel: 0117 966 6066.

SHOPS TREASURE

83

■ One man’s junk is another man’s treasure – and a fabulous array of unwanted gems and rough diamonds can be discovered in this Stokes Croft charity shop. Quirky second-hand store Treasure is an irresistible box of delights offering second-hand LPs and singles, books, games, beautifully rejuvenated donated apparel and locally sourced original pieces from artists and designers. All of the money raised is collected as a “Treasure Chest Fund” that can be applied for by individuals and projects in the Stokes Croft area, feeding resources into the local community. ■ 100 Stokes Croft.

SHOPS BRISTOL CIDER SHOP

SHOPS PAPER VILLAGE

■ Paper Village is a small shop with big ambition. An art shop and creative hub on North Street, Bedminster, it not only sells top quality art and craft supplies but also encourages the whole community to get involved in a wide range of inspiring courses and projects. The quirky store supplies local creatives with everything they could need for design and drawing, knitting and crochet, needle felting and block printing, as well as children’s craftmaking supplies. Owner Vicky also runs numerous courses and community projects, which have included decorating local garden gates, sewing dresses for charity and creating the city of Bristol out of wool.

■ Tucked away on the city’s historic Christmas Steps, Bristol Cider Shop is a little piece of heaven for those who are partial to the West Country’s traditional tipple. Perhaps surprisingly, given Bristolians’ love for the apple’s charms, this is the city’s only specialist cider shop and it attracts cider fans like bees to nectar. The brainchild of Peter Snowman and Nick Davis, Bristol Cider Shop opened in 2010 and now offers more than 100 varieties of draught and bottled cider. The store stocks only real cider and perry made in the traditional way, from 100 per cent juice, and all of its ciders are made within 50 miles of Bristol by small independent producers.

SHOPS BEACH ANTIQUES

■ Beach Antiques is a hidden gem tucked away near Clevedon Pier. Crunch your way along the gravel drive then head down some steep steps – taking heed of the Mind Your Head sign – and you’ll find yourself in a lavish den surrounded by stunning, sparkling accessories for you and your home. It feels like a real treat to explore this small, below-ground shop where you can unearth some unique treasures, from antique rings and vintage lamps to contemporary necklaces and boho broaches. With constantly updated stock, you’ll want to return time and time again – but be warned, Beach Antiques is only open at weekends.

SHOPS FIG

■ A truly original shop on the vibrant Gloucester Road, Fig gives savvy shoppers the opportunity to purchase beautiful, hand-made gifts while also supporting the local high street and giving Bristol artists a well-earned boost. The shop is run as a co-operative by six diverse and talented local craftswomen who each contribute their own eclectic works. Shoppers can pick up hand-crafted gifts, unique prints, framed needlecraft, bespoke jewellery, quirky T-shirts and handbags and limited edition greetings cards. ■ 206 Gloucester Road, Bristol, BS7 8NU.

ART GRANT BRADLEY GALLERY

■ On a Saturday morning at 8am the streets are largely free of traffic, the pavements are empty and the shops are all closed. But there’s one place you can guarantee a queue and that’s at Joe’s Bakery on the Gloucester Road in Bishopston. It’s a bakery so popular that they have different entry and exit doors, like the gents at a football stadium (although Joe’s is far more fragrant). You can find exciting bread here, as it is a craft bakery, but if you’re just after a traditional jammy doughnut or a giant rock cake, you’ll find those here too. Their almond croissants sell out early, so set the alarm to make sure you get some. ■ 240-242 Gloucester Rd, Bishopston, BS7 8NZ. Tel: 0117 975 5551; www.joesbakery.co.uk. ■ Next to Asda and just down the road from where the buses that use Bedminster Parade drop off and pick up might not be the place you’d expect to find a quirky art gallery, but it’s there nonetheless. Opened in 2005, the Grant Bradley Gallery is housed in what was the area’s library, and exhibits work from Bristol artists and others from across the UK and even the world. Next up is a solo exhibition by Bristol painter David Johnson, who specialises in land and seascapes. Like all the exhibitions, entry is free, and the Grant Bradley Charitable Trust benefits local people.

ART CENTRESPACE

■ Perhaps unfairly, the sight of this building could send a shudder down the spine of some native Bristolians, probably because they were taken there on a school trip more than once. But the Banksy exhibition of 2009 drew visitors from all over the world to the top of Park Street, while at the same time prompting many locals to see the place in a new night. Currently hosting Jeremy Deller’s English Magic exhibition, there’s often more going on inside than the exterior might suggest. And the colourful shop sells a wide range postcards and prints from the museum collections and by local artists, local history books and maps, Bristol Blue glass, novelties and toys.

■ Known as the Bristol Craft Centre when it was founded in 1977, Centrespace is a “live” art space, in as much as it’s also the home to several artists as well as being a place for people to show their work. It has dozens of studio and workshop places where sculptors, animators, painters, printmakers, woodcarvers and other artists can get inspiration from the creative juices flowing around them. Located on Leonard Lane, one of those city centre streets that seems to lead to nowhere, it’s a real haven for artists, but it’s unlikely many people who visit the city centre stumble upon it.

GALLERY AND SHOP BRISTOL MUSEUM AND ART GALLERY

91 ART ROYAL WEST OF ENGLAND ACADEMY ■ You couldn’t really say the academy is off the beaten track, given its location where Queen’s Road meets Whiteladies Road, but it’s a building that plenty of people walk past without giving a second thought. The Bristol Academy for the Promotion of Fine Arts was founded in 1844 and their gift to the city is the grade-II listed building we have today. Works by Picasso, Rodin Bonnard and Charles Rennie Mackintosh have all been seen here down the years, and the permanent collection features some 1,300 items. ■ Queens Rd.

■ This 1930s/40s partner dance is back in style, and there are plenty of opportunities in Bristol to learn. You can take your pick from half-hour taster classes in Easton, or an eight-hour course in Southville. And here are some tips on upcoming swing dance classes in the city: Sunday, May 4, 8pm at The Trinity Centre; Friday, May 9, 7.30pm at The Bootlegger Bar; Friday, May 23, 8pm at the Southbank Club; Any Tuesday, 7.30pm at the City Academy, Easton; or, an intensive weekend course, June 14-15, in Southville. ■ www.swingdancebristol.com

TRY THIS NORDIC WALKING

TRY THIS WOODTURNING

■ If walking is too tame, but running wrecks your knees try Nordic walking. Yes, it’s with sticks that look like ski poles, but these make it more difficult than walking without them, not less, since you’ll be engaging your upper body and core. If you’re not fit when you start, stick with it for a few weeks and you soon will be; it’s more strenuous than it looks. Bristol Nordic Walking takes groups for jaunts around Ashton Court estate, on The Downs, in Portishead and sometimes farther afield.

■ Would you believe it, there’s actually a local organisation dedicated to this rural craft – and the Avon and Bristol Woodturners celebrate their 25 anniversary this year. New people can chip in to the monthly meetings at Filton, or join regular courses held by the Max Carey Woodturning Trust at The Mill on Portishead High Street. ■ www.avon-and-bristol-woodturners.org.uk

TRY THIS OUTDOOR SWIMMING

99

TRY THIS LEARN TO ROW

■ It’s the bracing experience; the sense of freedom and closeness to nature that attracts swimmers out of chlorinated indoor pools and into rivers and lakes. Around Bristol, the best spots to indulge in “wild swimming” include Henleaze Lake in the city (you’ll need to go with a member or join the lengthy waiting list); Warleigh Weir on the Avon near Claverton; Avon Valley Country Park near Saltford; The Lake at Trench Lane, Bradley Stoke; Portishead Lido; the tidal pool at Clevedon; the River Yeo at Yatton; and Cromhall Diving Centre in South Gloucestershire, which is a flooded quarry.

■ It’s one of the more disconcerting sights a diner can see as they tuck into their sticky toffee pudding with ice cream at the Severn Shed or River Station – a set of fit, young rowers gliding past, muscles straining as the cox bellows at them. Instant guilt to go with your dessert. But you could just join them – the City of Bristol Rowing Club is based down by Underfall Yard and offers regular courses on learning the basics – the next one starting at the end of June. It’s a great form of exercise and a lovely way to enjoy the city.

TRY THIS RIDE A HORSE

■ Well known for its dedication to disabled riders, the charitable Avon Riding Centre in Henbury actually takes able-bodied improvers too, including children from the age of nine. There are also regular competitions, holiday activities, demonstrations and team-building days to contemplate. Fair-weather riders need not worry since there’s an enormous indoor arena. Not far away, in Clapton In Gordano, the Gordano Valley Riding Centre offers lessons, hacks and “pony parties” ideal for children’s birthdays. But for a get-away-from-it-all experience, try Tynings Trekking Centre for a jaunt up on the Mendip Hills. Some rides from here even include a pub stop. We’ll drink to that!

97

TRY THIS CLIMBING

■ Got a head for heights and a nose for adventure? Join Sheer Adventure for a trip up the Avon Gorge, but not in a boat, on a rope. It doesn’t matter if you’re a newby, the trained instructors will show you how it’s done. And if you’re acrophobic you can still have a go since there are several indoor climbing walls in Bristol where the ascents are obviously vertically limited. At some, like long-established Undercover Rock in St Werburgh’s Church, you can do it with ropes. Others, like St Philip’s-based Bristol Climbing Academy, specialise in “bouldering” (without ropes) but the floors are covered with nice soft matting, so chances are you won’t break anything. Climb as a family, with a group of friends, or challenge work-mates to a spot of team building. ■ www.sheeradventure.co.uk, www.theclimbingacademy.com, www.undercoverrock.com

For £27.50 per person you will be ushered into the lower bar and encouraged to get a shake on. ■ www.thesquareclub.com

AND FINALLY REWARD YOURSELF

■ If Friday night is takeaway night, try dropping by Acapella on Wells Road. The pizzas here are the genuine article – thin crispy bases, with fresh, flavour-packed toppings. But the trick to the perfect takeaway is in the side orders. So, pick a pizzas to suit your taste (the brave will go for the double chillies of the Fortissimo – £12.45 for a 14inch) and then augment it with the garlic pizza bread (£3.95) and an Acappella salad (£4.50). And, seeing as you’ve made the journey, why not grab a portion of the sticky ginger, orange and cinnamon cake (£2.20)? That lot will easily feed two, with plenty of leftovers. ■ Acappella, 184c Wells Road. Tel: 0177 971 3377; www.acapellas.co.uk.

Scaling dizzy heights with new solo work

GIG OF THE WEEK: Neil Finn Colston Hall, Saturday April 26. 7.30pm, £34.94, www.colstonhall.org

32 HEAR IT ● ● ● ● ●

from Friday, April 25, 2014


F

ormer Split Enz and Crowded House frontman Neil Finn did not set out with a theme in mind for his third solo album, it just happened by default. Finn’s first solo album since 2001, Dizzy Heights was co-produced by Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips) and recorded between Finn’s Roundhead studio in Auckland, New Zealand, and Fridmann’s Tarbox studio in upstate New York. The record is Finn’s third solo outing since leaving Crowded House and it follows Try Whistling This and One Nil (or One All). Regarded by many critics as his best solo work to date, Dizzy Heights has a recurring theme of flight and being airborne, with songs evoking a sensation of sharp ascent, of giddy heights and the thrill of free-fall. One of the stand-out tracks is Divebomber, a song inspired by the Second World War film of the same name. It’s a song that started life when Finn was playing on his computer with some images collected from the window of an aeroplane as it peeped above the clouds. Suddenly, the computer started to play tricks and the images were abutted with footage captured in Greece, of boys jumping into the sea. “I had an accident, where I put this keying effect on there, and suddenly saw these kids jumping through clouds, and I thought ‘I’ll just use that’. It was a bit of good luck,” says Finn, a highly regarded songwriter, whose Crowded House hits include Fall At Your Feet, Locked Out and the top ten hit Weather With You. “The theme of Dizzy Heights just crept up on me, but I started noticing it in lots of places,” he says. “You start off with a number of different threads and angles and demos, and they dictate the terms of the record. It’s only in the course of the process that you maybe get a feeling there’s a type of song emerging, or an atmosphere.” An indirect inspiration for the height motif is mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary, who was

COMPETITION WIN A SIGNED GEORGE MICHAEL ALBUM AND LYRIC BOOK

the first to reach the peak of Mount Everest in 1953, five years before Neil was born. “Hillary had a huge impact on my generation of New Zealanders,” says Finn. “There’s something in the New Zealand DNA about trying to scale impossible heights. It’s something that can be very positive, but also has its downside.” Amid its vertiginous, richly melodic swirl, Dizzy Heights contemplates love (Better Than TV), loss (Flying In The Face of Love), ageing (Recluse) and allure (Lights Of New York). Neil Finn was 18 when he was invited by his older brother Tim to join the trailblazing art-rock band Split Enz. His career since might be measured as a series of bounds, the best-known being Crowded House, which he founded with Paul Hester and Nick Seymour after the break-up of Split Enz in 1984. Four albums, among them Crowded House and Together Alone, brought the group popular and critical acclaim around the world. Along the way there have been a host of collaborations, including with brother Tim and wife Sharon, and an array of names such as Johnny Marr, Ed O’Brien, Eddie Vedder and members of Wilco. There have been two previous solo albums – and yet Dizzy Heights unmistakably marks a fresh leap. With wife Sharon (bass) and sons Liam (guitar) and Elroy (drums), Finn travelled in two bursts to producer Dave Fridmann’s New York studio to record songs composed at his Auckland studio. With Fridmann, and in collaborations with young New Zealand musicians Connan Mockasin and SJD, Finn has assembled a textured, heady sound, furnished and elevated by woozy strings and soaring vocals. “I didn’t want to make it a solo record in a stripped back, singer-songwriter sort of way. I had a feeling Dave would be good at adding some odd shapes to the music, which I always welcome – making things a little more expansive. “He is good at subverting things, and making things sound a bit messed up and not as obvious, rather than being too tasteful, which is always a temptation.”

There’s something in the New Zealand DNA about trying to scale impossible ❝ heights. It’s something that can be very positive, but also has its downside. from Friday, April 25, 2014

GOAN DOGS LOUISIANA, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30

B

Music Awards, the duo will be performing fresh material taken from their highly anticipated new album, due for UK release later in the year. With their new “post-disco” direction, Madison Violet keep hold of their beautiful trademark organic, raw vocals, while adding beats and synths; the result is a beautiful crossover of electronic folk from two of Canada’s finest singer/songwriters.

ristol’s hotly-tipped Goan Dogs have been locked away in the studio, writing a cache of new material for the follow-up to their debut EP, 20 Minutes From The Border. Their new double A-side single, Never Gonna Let You Down/Nothing Like This, offers an intricately crafted sound with contagious rhythms, exotic harmonies and cinematic grooves. Formed in 2010, Goan Dogs have become firm favourites with Bristol music fans and have been taking their desert rock further afield, winning fans up and down the country and attracting the attention of industry influencers, including Elbow’s Guy Garvey, who described them as “Bristol’s finest”. Their atmospheric live performances lift their already ethereal songs above the parapet into the realms of Arcade Fire and Calexico courtesy of pulsating rhythms and striking visuals. The five-piece are promoting their new release with a series of live shows around the UK, including this homecoming show at Louisiana.

t’s been four and a half years since Hudson Mohawke’s debut album Butter, but he’s hardly been idle in that time. As well as releasing a wellreceived solo EP – 2011’s Satin Panthers – the Glaswegian producer has worked with John Legend and Azealea Banks, and collaborated on a series of cuts for Kanye West, including two tracks on last year’s all-conquering Yeezus. Meanwhile, under the name TNGHT he teamed up with Lunice for a pair of trapflavoured EPs that damaged dance floors wherever they dropped. When the long-awaited second album finally comes out later this year, it will be a much higher profile affair than any of his previous solo efforts. Hudmo – real name Ross Bichard – has a unique style that filters US hip-hop and R&B

As a DJ he’s incredibly versatile – equally compelling whether creating unlikely combinations of cutting edge beats, or curating a set of vintage jams. With a reputation like that, you’d expect a venue the size of Start The Bus to get a little cosy tonight, especially with the mighty Crazylegs team providing promotion duties and DJ support. Also likely to draw a few punters is the mysterious SOPHIE (actually a bloke, reportedly called Sam) whose impossibly fresh Bipp was named 2013 “track of the year” by one underground music blog (XLR8R) and made the top 50s of most of the others. ■ Crazylegs is at Start The Bus, Baldwin Street, Bristol, on Saturday, April 26, from 9pm to 3am, £12.

T

he Northern Lights are flickering over Norway for the second concert in Bristol Ensemble’s three-part series training a musical telescope on the Baltics. Having conducted the first concert exclusively devoted to Finland, Ben Gernon now gets in touch with his inner troll for Johan Halvorsen’s Scenes From Norwegian Fairy Tales, and although this concert isn’t focused on one composer like its predecessor, it’s keen to keep things in the family as Halvorsen’s “uncle-in-law,” Grieg, takes over. If the opener is unfamiliar, the Grieg is unrepentantly mainstream and culminates in the two orchestral suites he pulled together

Fresh from his cycle of the complete Beethoven piano sonatas at Bath’s Holburne Museum, Peter Donohoe is pining for the fiords with a work he first performed as a 12-year-old. And it’s piano concertos all the way to the end of the season – the last concert on May 18 features Andrei Gavrilov in two giants: the Tchaikovsky No. 1, and Rachmaninov’s mighty third. ■ Bristol Ensemble: Northern Lights, Friday, April 25, Colston Hall, Colston St, Bristol, at 7.30pm. £15-£29/under-26s £8/under-18s £1 plus fees.

Morose Depp takes centre stage in muddled madness

M

an’s unhealthy relationship with technology takes a sinister turn in Wally Pfister’s ham-fisted sci-fi thriller, which imagines the consequences of an artificial intelligence running amok in the digital realm. The high-brow concept of Jack Paglen’s undernourished script is at odds with the whizz-bang pyrotechnics that director Pfister is asked to deliver in the muddled second act, ultimately starving the film of jeopardy. Characters are poorly developed and the line between the supposedly evil computer and valiant human rebels is blurred to the point that we couldn’t care less if our entire species is wiped out. Total oblivion would be sweeter than another 20 minutes spent in the company of a morose Johnny Depp and his co-stars. Transcendence opens in Berkeley, California, in the aftermath of a global blackout. “The internet was meant to make the world a smaller place but it actually feels smaller without it,” muses Dr Max Waters (Paul Bettany). The narrative rewinds to the same location five years earlier, where Dr Waters’s good friend Dr Will Caster (Depp), a pioneer in the field of artificial intelligence, lives with his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall). They are at the forefront of a scientific vanguard, which hopes to create a machine with sentience. Extremists called R.I.F.T. (Revolutionary Independence From Technology) oppose this

advancement and shoot Will with a poloniumtainted bullet. Doctors give Dr Caster a month to live so Evelyn suggests her beau continues his work by uploading his mind to a super-computer. Dr Waters urges caution, but Evelyn ignores his warnings, desperate to cling on to her husband. R.I.F.T. leader Bree (Kate Mara) is powerless to stop Will making the leap into the digital abyss and when Evelyn uploads him to the internet, he infiltrates every hard drive on the planet. As Will’s thirst for knowledge intensifies, Dr Waters joins forces with fellow academic Joseph Tagger (Morgan Freeman), FBI agent Donald Buchanan (Cillian Murphy) and military man Colonel Stevens (Cole Hauser) to create a virus that will corrupt Will and protect mankind from his insidious influence. Transcendence begins promisingly, setting out Will and Eve’s utopian vision of cutting-edge technology to heal the planet and eradicate disease. Once radioactive isotopes are coursing through the central character’s bloodstream, screenwriter Paglen struggles to sustain dramatic momentum and the final hour unfolds at a pedestrian pace that makes the running time seem closer to three hours than two. If the end point – a world starved of electricity and gadgets – halts screenings of Pfister’s film, then perhaps there is method in R.I.F.T.’s muddled madness.

TRANSCENDENCE (12A, 119 mins) Starring Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Morgan Freeman

VERDICT: Depp’s lifeless performance suggests a robotic doppelganger was hired to take his place while Hall and Bettany are tortured and tearful, wrestling with murky questions of morality that seem beyond the film’s flimsy grasp.

Revenge caper descends into crude predictable farce

R

FILM TITLE THE OTHER WOMAN (12A, 109 mins), starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton.

VERDICT: The Other Woman fails to deliver in a messy and unsatisfying final act that skids wildly out of control and muddies the underlying message of female empowerment.

Score ★★★✩✩ 48 S E E I T ● ● ● ● ●

evenge is a dish best served ice-cold and in generous portions in Nick Cassavetes’s romantic comedy of spiteful sisterly solidarity. For the first hour, it’s a tasty dish laced with tart one-liners by screenwriter Melissa Stack, who deftly sketches the emotional bonds between a wife and the two other women, who have unknowingly slept with her skirt-chasing husband. These early scenes, in which the embittered spouse surfs a tidal wave of rage while the two mistresses wrestle with their guilt, achieve a pleasing blend of painful home truths and ribald humour. “You had sex with my husband 50 times?!” shrieks the wife when she learns about the impressively gymnastic nature of her husband’s relationship with one of his bits on the side. “Don’t you have a job? Or hobbies?!” she caterwauls. Once the feisty femmes agree on a plan of attack to make the cheating husband pay for his bed-hopping sins, any subtlety in the script is supplanted by crude toilet humour and cutesy fairy tale romances for two of the protagonists. Thus one mistress drops laxatives into the husband’s drinks and we’re treated to a protracted sequence in a cramped toilet cubicle with the philanderer as he endures a blitzkrieg of deafening rectal explosions that seem to go on forever. He deserves his comeuppance, we just don’t

need to see or hear it, blow for literal blow. Carly Whitten (Cameron Diaz) is a high-flying attorney with a sassy personal assistant (Nicki Minaj), who aptly describes her boss as “a ruthless law-robot”. However, Carly wants to be adored and she falls for a handsome charmer called Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), who showers her with gifts. On the spur of the moment, Carly surprises Mark in a sexy outfit and she stumbles on his secret: he’s married with a wife Kate (Leslie Mann), who gave up her job for her man. Unexpectedly, the two women become friends. Shared sisterly sympathy solidifies when Carly and Kate discover that Mark has been cheating on both of them with another woman, Amber (Kate Upton). Emboldened by their experiences, Carly, Kate and Amber resolve to teach Mark a lesson he will never forget. Meanwhile, Carly flutters her eyelashes at Kate’s hunky brother, Phil (Taylor Kinney). “You aren’t having my husband and my brother,” Kate warns her. Diaz and Mann spark appealing screen chemistry and Coster-Waldau possesses the right amount of charm and slipperiness to convince us that he could deceive so many women, and almost get away with it. Upton is surplus to requirements, but does provide a predictable final punchline for Carly’s ageing, five-times divorced father (Don Johnson).

Coming home to take your breath away

O

ne of Bristol’s most famous sons, Olympic champion and TV personality Robin Cousins, says he is “over the moon” to be bringing his spectacular new show home. The 56-year-old skating star and head judge on ITV’s Dancing On Ice will be in the audience when Robin Cousins: Ice triple salchows its way into The Bristol Hippodrome next week. “I can’t wait to sit in the audience of that gorgeous theatre and watch along with everybody else,” he tells me. Robin, who choreographs and directs but does not appear in the show, has hand-picked the greatest ice skaters from around the globe to create a thrilling production that promises to redefine ice skating for a new generation. Robin says: “I am very excited to bring the daring and dazzling world of figure skating back into an intimate theatrical setting. “The show encompasses everything skating, which I have loved for the past 50 years, has to offer. It comprises everything I knew from performing on the ice and everything I have learned since as a choreographer and director. “I am very proud of this spectacular show.” The Hippodrome stage will be covered by a sheet of ice as the skaters glide, spin and somersault across it in a sequence of jaw-dropping numbers. But it’s not just the skating that takes

your breath away. Audiences will be awestruck by the acrobatics and illusions and thrilled by the impressive lighting and powerful musical score. “This show has it all,” Robin smiles. “I love music and melody and that’s definitely an important factor in this show. There’s everything from stunning classical music to Elton John and Lady Gaga. It really is exciting.” Robin says he has been eager to bring Ice to The Bristol Hippodrome. “I saw my first ice show in Bristol in the late 1960s,” he recalls. “Later, I had a wonderful response to my own shows, Electric Ice and Ice Majesty. Most recently I performed there in Grease. “It has been my favourite place to perform both on and off the ice and now I am very excited to bring my new show back home.” One of Bristol’s best-known sporting figures, Robin grew up in Sea Mills and took his first steps on the ice at Silver Blades Ice Rink on Frogmore Street. He came third in the British Skating Championships at the age of 15, while he was attending Henbury Comprehensive School, and went on to become the three-time world free-skating champion. He was also a European gold medallist as well as one of Britain’s Olympic heroes. Robin has since performed, choreographed and directed ten productions, skated on stage at the Radio City Music Hall, starred as Billy Flynn in Chicago and was head judge on ITV’s hugely successful Dancing On Ice.

fter bidding a fond farewell to the cobbles of Coronation Street, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School graduate Stephanie Cole returns to the theatre where she learned her trade to star in a groundbreaking new play about the NHS. The stage and screen stalwart, who recently quit Corrie after playing Roy Cropper’s outspoken mother Sylvia for two years, will star in Stella Feehily’s new play This May Hurt A Bit at The Bristol Old Vic next week. As the Government launches the biggest top-down reorganisation the service has seen in its 65-year history, we follow one family’s journey through the digestive system of the NHS, and asks: what is the prognosis for this much-loved, and fiercely debated, institution? “This is a wonderful play based on a family whose members make use of the NHS,” says Stephanie, whose memorable TV credits include Tenko and Doc Martin. “You get to see this family at home and in hospital and it also takes a dip into the surreal and we get to meet Winston Churchill and we have a little bit of a song and dance. “It’s very quick, snappy and funny, but it’s incredibly moving at the same time.” The witty and unapologetic agitprop on behalf of a beleaguered NHS has become something of a must-see and Stephanie has been winning plaudits for her portrayal of 90-year-old Iris. “She’s the matriarch of the family and a feisty

character who was there at the birth of the NHS and loves it,” explains Stephanie. “Interestingly, the last time I played a 90-year-old was in 1958 at the Bristol Old Vic when I was at the Old Vic School. It was a bit part in a play directed by Prunella Scales and starring Leonard Rossiter. “So here I am, however many years later, back on the same stage playing a 90-year-old. I’m afraid I’m a lot closer to the right age than I’d like to be this time!” Writer Stella Feehily is married to the show’s director Max Stafford-Clark. It was Max’s experience of a stroke in 2006, plus years of subsequent treatment, which prompted Stella to write the play. This May Hurt A Bit is a mixture of the personal and the political, but the over-riding message of the play is that even national treasures are not safe from the vandalising tendencies of politicians. “Every 36 hours the NHS treats a million people and we can’t afford to lose this wonderful institution,” says Stephanie. “What drew me to this piece was the opportunity to do something that not only entertains but is also incredibly worthwhile. “It’s a lot of fun and audiences will be entertained, but also learn important facts at the same time.” There will be a post-show talk each night with special guests from the arts and the medical profession.

lever, witty and moving in turn, Butterfly Psyche Theatre’s new production is a delicate drama about memory loss. Dante DeLucca is an aging classicist who is slowly losing the battle with dementia since the death of his wife. He and his daughter Iphee must come to terms with his fading memory and how it will change their relationship. But they are not alone: with the unlikely appearance of Mneme, the Muse of Memory, father and daughter find the strength to make the transition together. The Persistence of Memory is directed by Bristol Old Vic Drama School directing student Nancy Medina, who says: “I am thrilled to be a part of this production. The script is beautifully written with characters to believe in and care about. I dare anyone to not relate to this material in some way.” In order to develop the script, playwright Alison Farina sought advice from those caring for loved ones suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s. Alison says: “All of us at one time or another in our lives will be touched by this issue, sadly some much sooner than others. “I wrote the play to draw attention to the challenges faced by so many families and to remind myself that our memories and the sharing of them with others is essential to coping.” ■ The Persistence of Memory, Monday, April 28 and Tuesday, April 29, The Bierkeller Theatre and Wednesday, April 30, The Rondo Theatre, Bath.

ppealing to the curtain twitcher in all of us, this witty and uplifting musical show takes a peep “behind the blinds” to reveal the idiosyncracies of a disparate group of people who all live in one street. At number 65 the wine is poured, the nibbles are ready and the cushions are plumped. Then the doorbell rings – the new neighbours have come to say hello. “Nice to meet you, do come in...” Richard and Isabelle are your hosts for the evening, and

THE SON JO NESBO

Searching for gold at end of Black Rainbow BOOK OF THE WEEK: Black Rainbow by Rachel Kelly

I

could no longer get out of bed and go to the bathroom but had to be picked up and carried in my foetal curl. Any change of position was out of the question; it was as if I were a victim at a crime scene, my position encircled in chalk. “Once in the bathroom, I couldn’t move back to bed. If I moved, I might fall further. So I lay on the floor gripping the towel rail, refusing to let go. My mother tried to loosen my grip, finger by finger.” Meet Rachel Kelly. Mother, wife, successful career woman – and crippled by depression. The condition affects one in four people, but you wouldn’t know it as only a small percentage seek help or talk openly about it. Rachel’s book Black Rainbow is a powerful story of her struggle with mental illness, and how she turned to poetry to lift her out of the abyss. In 1997 Rachel was working at The Times when her world fell apart. She went from being mildly anxious to unable to function within the space of just three days. Her doctor prescribed her anti-depressants and with the support of her husband and family her situation improved, but her ordeal was not over. Six years later, as a stay-at-home mother, she suffered a second collapse that was even worse

than the first. Salvation came from an unlikely source – poetry, and the book is littered with the 40 poems or hymns that became important to Rachel during her struggles. Many of them deal with her battle to keep her faith alive while all the normal aspects of her life dissolved into darkness. The book builds to an uplifting finish, as Rachel is able to resume doing many of the things she took for granted before depression struck, although she is realistic in her realisations that it will always be with her. Proceeds from the book are going to be donated to charities SANE and United Response, which help people suffering from mental illness. i€ [{l}l Ulsslu

Black Rainbow is published by Yellow Kite, an imprint of Hodder & Stoughton, and costs £16.99. It is also available as an ebook.

■ Jo Nesbo has forged his reputation from carving hard-bitten characters out the many flaws of human nature. The Harry Hole series brought the Norwegian author and musician awards as well as millions in sales, and his book Headhunters also took him to the big screen, and The Son will soon follow after being snapped up by Warner Brothers. Like the Hole series, The Son creates a brand new anti-hero, an avenging angel of sorts, whose destiny is driven by righting perceived wrongs with a bloody and bullet-riddled path through the criminal underworld. To his many other talents, Nesbo should probably add accounting, such is the commercial success of his work. Watch this new work fly off the shelves and pack the audiences in the cinemas in equal measure. i€ Zvkk€ Jyvvrz

TURNING THE STONES DEBRA DALEY ■ For fans of historical fiction with a smattering of romance and mystery, you couldn’t pick a better novel. Turning the Stones is the story of Em Smith, brought to the Cheshire countryside by Mrs Waterland, from, Em is told, the Foundling hospital. Treated at first as one of the family and brought up as a sister to their daughter Eliza, there arrives a fateful birthday where the Waterlands can no longer afford to keep her, and so she becomes Eliza’s lady’s maid. This story is woven together with the story in the present: as the book begins, Em wakes in an unfamiliar room with a bloodied man on the floor, and flees for the coast. However, is this of her own free will, or is it the work of Kitty Conneely’s black magic, turning the stones to lure Em back to Connemara and her past? A historical mystery for a cosy afternoon.

Focus on photography as festival returns Kyoto, Japan by Gabor Csupity from Journeys at the YHA, 14 Narrow Quay

PICK OF THE WEEK Bristol Festival of Photography, Thursday, May 1 to Saturday, May 31, various venues, Bristol. Visit www.bfop.org.

Y

our own photographic experience may be limited to the images of holidays, street scenes and family members that you snap on your digital camera or mobile phone – but the art of photography itself spans dozens of techniques, styles and materials, many of them dating back well over a century. And one of the objectives of the excellent, biennial Bristol Festival of Photography is to show that, far from dying out, many of these fascinating and beautiful techniques are in fact thriving. The third instalment of this festival runs throughout May and features about 45 exhibitions in cafés, galleries and community venues across Bristol – plus a wealth of photography workshops in both traditional and modern photographic processes. You’ll also find photographic and projection-based performances, a Victorian photo parlour (why not have your portrait taken 19th-century style?), pop-up art installations and an itinerant exhibition (in a suitcase), as well as a range of innovative events that combine photography, creative writing and fine dining. Exhibition highlights include the South West Graduate Photography Prize, a showcase of the best new photography talent from the

region, hosted by Knowle West Media Centre. This exhibition includes a special preview of a new commission from SWGPP winner Nicholas White: a landscape exploration of Bristol entitled 5000 Island Forest. North of the river, Somerdale: Unwrapped at the Folk House is a document, by local photographer David Calvin, of the vast, beguiling interiors of the former Fry’s/Cadbury’s Somerdale factory at Keynsham. Following its closure over three years ago, architectural and landscape photographer Calvin revisited the factory by invitation, documenting the historic industrial site as it awaits redevelopment. Elsewhere, Oxfam’s Clifton Village bookshop hosts an exhibition of beautiful images by the international, Bristol-based photographer Michael Reeves. Using a variety of film cameras, Reeves’ work includes dreamlike images of overlooked scenes and abandoned objects. Outdoor exhibitions, meanwhile, include The Big Photo Show, an inventive outdoor installation of large photos created by the young people using Easton’s Felix Road Adventure Playground, in collaboration with the artist Deborah Weinreb. Not far away at Lawrence Hill railway station, you’ll find an exhibition by City Academy students, who have worked with

from Friday, April 25, 2014

community artist Rachel Sokal to explore neighbourhoods, people and history along the Severn Beach Line. Apart from providing Bristolians with a host of beautiful, fascinating images and introducing them to the various techniques behind them, one of the main thrusts of the festival is to demonstrate that traditional photographic techniques are standing up well against the onrush of technology. “In this second decade of the 21st century you could be forgiven for thinking that digital photography has swept all before it, and that traditional techniques have all but died out – yet our festival shows that classic ‘chemical’ photography is still alive and well,” explains festival organiser Chris Waller. “What is more, archaic photographic processes such as salt-printing, wet collodion and gum-bichromate printing, dating back to the very origins of photography some 175 years ago, are still being practised. Visitors to the festival will not only have the opportunity to see work produced by these processes – they can also learn the basics themselves, at one of the many workshops running throughout the month. “Photography is a broad church – and this has never been more evident than in this year’s festival!”


EXPLORATION ANTLERS GALLERY

TURNER: WATERCOLOURS FROM THE WEST BRISTOL MUSEUM AND ART GALLERY ■ In the autumn of 1791 a young 16-year-old called Joseph Mallord William Turner spent his September holiday in Bristol with friends of his father. During the course of his stay the precocious artist, who had joined the Royal Academy Schools in 1789 and exhibited a watercolour at the Royal Academy for the first time the following year, spent so much of his time in the Avon Gorge that his hosts nicknamed him “Prince of the Rocks”. Turner was soon to become, of course, one of the greatest British painters of all time, and his sketchbook from this youthful visit is now kept in the collections at Tate Britain. And, for the next two months, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery is exhibiting a selection of eight Bristol and West Country watercolours by this great, energetic landscape painter, a wonderful depicter of light and movement and

a forerunner of the Impressionists. Turner watercolours from Bristol Museums, Galleries & Archives’ own collection will be displayed alongside those of Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum and Bath’s Holburne Museum and Victoria Art Gallery in what marks the first exhibition of the Frameworks partnership, which celebrates great art collections in the West of England. Highlights include Bristol’s recently acquired Turner watercolour Mouth of the Avon, near Bristol, seen from Cliffs below Clifton, pictured here. ■ Thursday, May 1 to Sunday, July 6, Bristol Museum and Art Gallery, Queens Road, Bristol. Mon-Fri 10am-5pm/weekends and Bank Hols 10am-6pm, free. 0117 922 3571/www.bristol.gov.uk/page/bristol-museumand-art-gallery.

■ The second show at Antlers Gallery’s new home – the former gas purifier building on the Harbourside – brings together three UK artists all interested in human technology and its encroachment on the world. Based at Jamaica Street Studios, Karin Krommes paints a world of machines, technology and serene landscapes, with an atmosphere reminiscent of Cold War imagery (Dance I, pictured). Geoff Diego Litherland draws on his nomadic, outsider upbringing to create paintings that mix traditional and contemporary concerns. Finally, Jemma Appleby uses her childhood in the New Forest as inspiration for her powerful, monochromatic forest and architectural landscapes. ■ Friday, April 25 to Saturday, June 7, Antlers Gallery, Purifier House, Lime Kiln Rd, Hotwells, 10am-6pm. 07780 503180/www.antlersgallery.com.

PIP GILLMAN ROOM 212 ■ Gloucester Road’s Room 212 welcomes this accomplished local artist, known for his watercolour paintings of cityscapes around Bristol and Bath. Pip’s latest collection of paintings focuses particularly on the area around Room 212 itself – Pigsty Hill, St Andrews Park, Bishop Road and around. Weather permitting (and that’s looking promising), Gillman also plans to set up his easel on the wide pavement outside the gallery and paint street scenes and passers-by – and will certainly be in situ for the first ever Glos Rd Central Mayfest, taking place on Saturday, May 3. Pip was a fruit grower for 20 years until a chance encounter in 1991, when he was given a sketchbook and pencil, started him on the road to painting at the age of 40. “I tried my hand at watercolour painting and discovered how frustratingly difficult it is,” explainsPip,whonowearnsalivingasatravellingartist, painting as he goes. “It’s an unforgiving medium, where mistakes can easily lead to failure. However, when it works its simplicity and transparency is unique.” ■ May 1-18, Room 212, 212 Gloucester Road, Bristol. 0117 330 2789/www.facebook.com/room212art.

Barbed master of observational comedy

PICK OF THE WEEK The Best in UK Stand-up with Paul Sinha and Co, Saturday, April 26

T

he UK comedy circuit’s only gay, Bengali ex-medic, Paul Sinha is also, more importantly, an intelligent and hugely likeable performer, and a master of beautifully presented observational comedy. Chances are you’ll have heard his mellow tones on various BBC2 and Radio 4 comedy and panel shows: and you can be assured that Sinha’s warm, self-deprecating delivery and

60 S E E I T ● ● ● ● ●

affectionately barbed commentaries on modern British life stand up very well on stage. Support tonight comes from the hip rising comic Joel Dommett. Last seen on BBC3's Impractical Jokers, Dommett was also the face of MTV News throughout 2012 and presented Live In Chelsea, the live E4 after-show for the hit series Made In Chelsea. In the world of stand-up proper, meanwhile, he won rave reviews for his Edinburgh shows

from Friday, April 25, 2014

Neon Hero (2011) and 2012’s Nunchuck Silver Medallist 2002. Dommett has a nicely ironic, slightly geeky way about him, not a million miles away from that other hipster darling Simon Amstell. ■ The Best in UK Stand-up with Paul Sinha and Co, Saturday, April 26, The Lantern, Colston Hall, Bristol. 8.30pm, £12.90 incl booking fee. 0844 887 1500/ www.colstonhall.org.

TERRY THE ODD JOB MAN LIVE! SATURDAY, APRIL 26 ■ Southmead handyman Terry the Odd Job Man – the alter-ego of comedian Jody Kamali – became a minor YouTube sensation back in 2007 with his hilarious short films, which mixed DIY coaching with insights into the Bristolian dialect. He returns now to perform this one-off live show at the Southmead Community Centre, right in Terry/Jody’s own heartland. When his fame first broke, Terry memorably coached Baywatch star David Hasselhoff in the local dialect on BBC Radio Bristol. His fan base has now spread further, with Bristolians saving his pet phrases as ringtones and university lecturers using

his videos as part of their English degree courses. Now Jody, who trained in clowning and is a regular performer on the London comedy circuit and Edinburgh Festival, has created a live show dedicated to life in Bristol. Tonight’s one-off will contain some of Terry’s infamous Bristolian Language Lessons, plus Bristolian Bingo, songs, extracts from his book 50 Shades of Bristol (written entirely in dialect, naturally) and plenty more. ■ Southmead Community Centre, 248 Greystoke Ave, Bristol, 8pm, £7.50. 0117 950 1187/ www.terrytheoddjobman.com.

INSTANT WIT SATURDAY, APRIL 26 ■ Prepare for a joyous evening of songs, gags and general silliness, as the brilliant, Bristol-based quickfire comedy improv group pitch up at Kingswood’s intimate Brass Works Theatre. Instant Wit use an impressive, changing roster of local actors and comics, depending on their availability: tonight’s line-up includes the excellent Chris Bianchi, recently seen in Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory’s Richard III. Instant Wit create their hilarious, fast-paced scenarios from audience suggestions, which can be as outlandish as you like. “Maybe you’ve always wanted to hear a medieval madrigal containing lines you might find written in a teenager’s diary, or watch a sketch where some ninja cockroaches take over 10 Downing Street? Your wish is our

command,” reveals long-term Instant Wit Stephanie Weston. Fear not, though – there’s no forced audience participation, and there’s even a section where anonymous suggestions, written down in the interval, can be acted out. Stephanie adds: “Many people have seen improvised comedy on the TV, such as Whose Line is it Anyway or Fast and Loose – but remember, this is not recorded and edited, but totally live! If you like your comedy fast-paced and with a slightly unusual edge, this is definitely for you.” ■ Brass Works Theatre, above Kingswood Heritage Museum, Tower Lane, Warmley, Bristol, 7.30pm, £11/£10 concs, www.brassworkstheatre.com.

‘It’s great to play a woman in authority’ HAPPY VALLEY TUESDAY, BBC1, 9PM ■ Writer Sally Wainwright and actress Sarah Lancashire must have formed a solid friendship after the Beeb’s incredibly successful Last Tango in Halifax – they’ve reteamed for this crime thriller. Happy Valley follows Catherine Cawood (Lancashire), who is the sergeant on duty when flustered accountant Kevin Weatherill (Steve Pemberton) stumbles into the station to report a crime – a crime that was his own doing: a plot to kidnap his boss’s daughter.

PREY MONDAY, ITV, 9PM ■ This three-part thriller stars John Simm as Detective Sergeant Marcus Farrow, a well-liked copper with two children whose marriage to Abi (Heather Peace) is enduring a rough patch. When he becomes prime suspect at a murder scene, his world is turned upside down. After being arrested and charged, it looks like Farrow is going to spend some time inside. However, when he gets the chance to escape, our hero grabs it with both hands and goes on the run in the Manchester streets he used to patrol.

VERA SUNDAY, ITV, 8PM

H

er crime-solving character Vera Stanhope rarely cracks a smile, but laughter and light-heartedness seem to accompany actress Brenda Blethyn wherever she goes. Anything can set the Oscar-nominated star off, from discussing Vera’s frumpy wardrobe to joking about “him indoors” – her art director husband Michael Mayhew. “Wherever I am, Michael comes and spends time with me. To be honest, it’s so full on working on Vera that he came up one time and I hardly saw him, because I was just too busy,” the 68-year-old confesses. Shooting the four stand-alone films, each two hours in length, is exhausting work. “I’m in nearly every scene – it’s long, long

days. Sometimes, if we’re at some of the beautiful coastline or moor locations, there’s maybe an hour’s drive each way, on top of the 12 or 13-hour day of filming. “Plus I have to learn tomorrow’s lines when I get home.” The toil is worth it, as Blethyn is clearly very fond of her brilliant, but somewhat shambolic character, based on the novels of Tynemouth author, Ann Cleeves. “What I really like about Vera, is that they’re maintaining this character and have totally avoided the temptation to either glamorise her, or make her less abrasive. What you see is what you get. It’s great to have a character of a certain age, a woman in authority, without the need for lipstick.”

GENERATION WAR: OUR MOTHERS , OUR FATHERS SATURDAY, BBC2, 9PM ■ Usually, if you want a Saturday night fix of subtitled drama, you have to turn to BBC Four. But now BBC Two is getting in on the act with this new series from Germany, the first foreign language show to premiere on the channel since The Kingdom back in 2001. The three-parter opens in the summer of 1941, as five friends meet for a farewell drink in a Berlin bar. Look out for the programme’s depiction of how ordinary Germans were affected by the war – the programme’s makers said they hoped to start a conversation about it – and they seem to have succeeded.
