BRISTOL HARBOUR FESTIVAL IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER, TAKING PLACE FROM 17 – 19 JULY 2015.
It’s a free event, attended by hundreds of thousands of people each year, both local and international.

Expect an abundance of live music, dance, street theatre performances and circus displays at Bristol’s Harbourside.

A fleet of pleasure craft, working boats and magnificent tall ships visit the festival each year to celebrate Bristol’s rich maritime heritage.

CIRCUS

Cirque Bijou returns to the Circus and Street Theatre stage for the 12th year running.

The theme this year is ‘Green’ to celebrate Bristol gaining the European Green Capital 2015 title.

Expect an abundance of ‘weird and wonderful’ performances from local favourites such as Circomedia and Desperate Men.

HAPPY CITY

Happy City are a non-profit organisation which campaigns for happiness to be taken seriously.

It has a ‘radically simple plan to grow happiness – one city at a time.’

Happy City will be situated at The Grove with an array of bands, performers and alternative therapies; all designed to portray life in a happy city.

MUSIC

Get ready for a showcase of Bristol’s famous music scene, with performances from more than 100 local acts.

Listen to a variety of live music across 7 venues in Bristol, from Queen Square to the Cascade Steps.

The show will also stretch to Louisiana, Bristol’s prime indie and folk music venue.

The Louisiana is an essential tour stop for emerging indie artists and bands like Muse and The Libertines have played here on their way to fame.

MARITIME EVENTS

Watch the Legendary Boat Races, where teams race in self-built cardboard vessels over the harbour.

The fastest boat to complete the circuit wins the race, with prizes also to be won for the most innovative and least seaworthy boats.
