For a year or two I’ve been sending out an occasional “culture-vultures’ bulletin” by e-mail, to my Bristol-based friends. My aim has been to flag up just a few upcoming (is that a word?) events that I fancy, from the impossibly wide selection of things going on in this lively city. There is nothing scientific or even systematic in my selection; just things that have caught my eye.
Here’s a recent and cut-down sample from my bulletin.
