Bristol & Bath Residents Weekend Friday 5 - Sunday 7 May 2017

Thank you for your interest in Residents Weekend Friday 5th May – Sunday 7th.

Cultural organisations across Bristol and Bath have offered up limited amounts of free tickets so that residents of Bristol and Bath are invited to ‘live like a tourist’.

Sunday 7th May: 

The sun has set on Bristol and Bath Residents Weekend 2017. Thank you to everyone who came and took part and especially to all of the organisations across the two cities who opened up their doors to local residents and reinforced what fantastic cities we live in. We had behind the scenes tours, explored museums and curator-led tours of exhibitions, saw outstanding theatre and music concerts, climbed up to the Cathedral roof, sang with soul, pounded the harbour and streets with theatrical walking tours and ALL FOR FREE. What a weekend.

Friday 5th May: Residents Weekend is here!

There are so many incredible cultural events and activities to get involved with across Bristol and Bath. Thank you for registering and if you did secure a ticket for the various events across the two cities then please remember that you need to take this with you alongside proof of address (a recent household bill).

We will be releasing a few more tickets and will keep everyone informed on twitter and Facebook if there are any cancellations and last minute spaces during the weekend. Or keep an eye on our what’s on page.
