10 things to do in Bristol this week – January 7- 11
Make the most of the week ahead with our guide to what’s on in Bristol.
1. Get your ballet fix at The Hippodrome from Tuesday to Thursday with two different shows from the Russian State Ballet – The Nutcracker and Swan Lake.
2. Explore the floating harbour’s history with a walk led by volunteers from M shed on Wednesday at 10.30am. The walk is free but there is a £2 suggetsed donation.
3. It’s a busy day in the Number One Lost Present Department. It’s Christmas-time and lots of presents have gone astray. Vic and Ed need to do some detective work… and FAST… to find a home for all the lost presents before it’s too late. And that’s not easy to fit in when there are so many other things to do, like playing games, making up songs, and inventing fun new toys. Can they do it or will there be children without presents? The Lost Present is a fun packed 50 minutes of physical comedy, musical mayhem and silly songs, with lots to make the little ones in your life laugh out loud. Catch the performance at The Brewery Theatre up until January 13. Tickets £7.
