~~Bristol City Council is teaming up with the Old City Traders’ & Business Group to Make Sunday Special this weekend, celebrating the rich heritage to be found within Bristol’s old city walls.
On Sunday 3 August, families have the chance to take part in an activity which allows them to explore the old city area in a whole new way. Run by the Old City Traders’ Group, visitors will be invited to take part in a quiz that will lead them round several key locations within the walled city.
These will correspond with a collection of traditionally printed colourful postcards which depict each place and location with a unique illustration, courtesy of Centrespace. A full collection of these postcards can be purchased from their stall on the day, or picked up individually from each of the businesses included in the project.
Visitors can also expect more of the usual Make Sunday Special fun and games with food stalls, live music and children’s activities spread throughout Corn Street and Small Street. There will also be a whole range of stalls outside of St Nicholas Market representing independent local businesses and all kinds of colourful cuisine.
Mayor of Bristol, George Ferguson said: “It will be great to see Make Sunday Special once again bringing a special buzz to the historic heart of the city as we explore Bristol’s roots.
“The Old City is home to some of Bristol’s most important historic architecture and sites, and is key to understanding the city’s past. It provides a great backdrop for this heritage themed Make Sunday Special event, continuing this summer’s series of memorable Sundays.”
The postcard project follows on from the success of the Old City Traders’ Group’s Walled City Walk Map which is available from the Tourist Information Centre and the Bristol Old City website - http://bristololdcity.co.uk/old-city-heritage-trail.
