Bristol Harbour Festival: Words not Pictures

Apparently 300,000 people visited what is claimed to be the biggest free event in the country.  We popped in on all three days, drawn by the sunshine and the lively atmosphere.

The Queen Square Stage - poor sound ruined an eclectic line up
The Continental Market - more variety and greater authenticity required
The Litter - how hard is it to ditch your litter in one of the dozens of recycling bins scattered across the site?

That the festival went ahead despite the fact that half last year's team were made redundant
The Happy City area with folk music, street art, local traders and eco stalls
The Circus Stage - breathtaking acts and hilarious compering
The Grain Barge Stage, which I wish we'd chosen instead of the Queen Square one.  Ho hum!
