Bristol’s ‘pop up’ creative hub starts with a bang

I attended the launch last night of a creative venture which has transformed a former car park near Bristol Temple Meads and was blown away by the results.

Nine months’ of live entertainment has kicked off in a big tent near where I work in Temple Quay, led by Creative Common and attended by hundreds of Bristolians last night.

They were invited into the tent on Plot 3 to stand and watch BIANCO, a fast-moving two hour display of high wire-walking, trapeze swinging, fire eating and live music.

It was a stunning way to kick off this year’s activity, which promises to put Bristol’s Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone firmly on the map. Congratulations to everyone who has supported the venture; it’s been great to see it take shape over the last few weeks.
