10 things to do in Bristol this weekend – March 16-17
Make the most of your weekend with our guide to what’s on in Bristol and the surrounding area.
1. It’s the last night of An Audience with the Duke of Windsor on Saturday, written and performed by Bob Kingdom, at Brewery Theatre. The performance is at 7.45pm – but there’s also a matinee at 2.15pm. The play tells the true behind-the-scenes story of Edward Duke of Windsor and the relationship with his ghost writer as they attempt to write his memoir A King’s Story for a million dollars. Tickets £11.
2. Bristol Bach Choir will be performing Bach’s Mass in B Minor at 7pm at St George's on Saturday. Tickets £5-£25.
3. Head to the Tobacco Factory Theatre on Sunday for Nutty Noah – an “explosive” family entertainment show. Go prepared to enjoy some wonderful original songs, plenty of audience participation and leave with a feeling of satisfaction that you aren’t related to him. Shows at 11am and 2pm.
