What's on in Bristol this February
So after a very dreary and grey January, that seemed to go on forever, we can’t wait for a new month. Short but sweet, February is chomping at the bit to begin and we imagine you are looking forward to it as much as we are. Jam-packed and raring to go, this will feel like the start to the year that you have been hoping for. Whether love is the focus of your month or not there is something to keep everyone busy. Enjoy!
Wicked at Bristol Hippodrome 31st Jan – Until 3rd March
First up for the month of February, Wicked is back at the Hippodrome Theatre. Playing throughout the month, you’ll have plenty of time to fit it in and we would definitely recommend it. Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, unravel the story of an unlikely friendship between two socery students and follow their adventures as they explore Oz. Expect costumes a plenty and the very best songs from what is described as one of the greatest musicals of our time! Tickets available here.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, it wouldn’t be Bristol without a festival and this month is no different. The second weekend welcomes the South West Vegan Festival at The Passenger Shed. If you’ve been giving veganuary a go and loved it this will be just the thing. Browse 100 stalls of the very best vegan food, beauty and clothing that the South West has to offer and get inspiration for your new lifestyle. This event is run by the Farplace Animal Rescue charity and all profits from the festival will go to the animals.
Biba Inspiration at The Vestibules 12th – 16th Feb
Fashion your bag? If so, don’t miss Biba Inspiration at The Vestibules. A collection of works on paper and card created using oil pastels, influenced by the iconic Biba style. Works by Bristol based artist Emanuela Di Filippo. If fashion from the 60s and 70s holds a special place in your heart then don’t miss this one!
St Valentine has arrived this year and if the thought of doing something soppy makes you cringe why not try the Alternative Valentines Day at Arnos Vale. Expect a cemetery tour and the screening of a Tim Burton favourite, The Corpse Bride. They say it’s good to try new things and this couldn’t get any further away from you normal date night. This is set to be a popular one so grab your tickets early.
Story Slam at The Wardrobe Theatre 18th Feb
The third Sunday of the month, and for following months for that matter, Story Slam takes place at The Wardrobe Theatre. Get the opportunity to hear people’s interesting stories or if you think you have one that makes the cut, pop your name in the hat and perhaps you can tell your own. Who knows what you’ll hear! Doors open at 13.30 for the show at 14:00 but word in the office is head there a bit earlier as a queue will form!
