Theatre Bristol Bulletin: 23rd April 2015 (goodbye my lover)

J BluntThe sun is shining, the tank is clean and this is my last Newsletter for Theatre Bristol, as my internship is coming to an end! Big up to the TB crew massive, you’ve been super amazing and I will miss you all. Anyway, before I break out into a James Blunt song, let’s get cracking with the letter of news.


Item one on the agenda is Testing Ground: Experiments in Dance 2015, an awesome platform for dance performers to share their works in progress.  Theatre Bristol are supporting the event, so get on down toCircomedia on the 7th May and check it out! A pineapple is involved.

More dancing now as DanceFest takes over the Bristol Old Vic. Performances include: Asking For It by PINCH and The Happiness by Karla Shacklock Company.Catch them both tonight! and Friday. Mate, I’m there.
