thought we'd better get a thread up sharpish, as it's only a few weeks away... first off, in a shock-horror-hold-the-front-page style, the suspension bridge will be closed over the weekend so no munted walking over the gorge, unless we bumrush it on the way back anyway, for those that don't know it, ashton court is a 2-day community music festival on the ashton court estate just the other side of the suspension bridge. it used to be free, but is now £5 per day. if you are skint, you can just get in to the site through the woods. the accent is on local acts, but there are usually some big name acts too (recent years: spiritualized, portishead, toploader , um, robert plant, stanton warriors, etc). there's a trading area, kids entertainment, healing/massage, beer, world music, jazz, classical... everything bar a dance stage (because the police are rancid poos ) anyway i'm rambling. check the website for details. let battle commence!
