A lifestyle blog bringing you fashion, music, food, and everything else that's just nice about Bristol and beyond!
In my opinion, humble though it may be, there are few things better than Bristol in the sunshine. Yes, I know I’ve said this before, and yes, I know I’m wanging on about the weather again, but hey – it’s amazing – suck it up!
We all know that Bristol has no shortage of great bars, restaurants and venues to grab a drink with friends, have a bite to eat, or catch some great live music, but it’s not until the sun’s shining that you realise you don’t have to actually GO anywhere to enjoy Bristol at it’s best. Bear with me on this, but here’s an example. Friday lunch time, Queen’s Square. A can of cider from the shop, a sandwich from home and some dude playing guitar somewhere across the square. It just goes to show that all you need to do is sit in the park and soak up the sunshine, the surroundings, and most of all the amazing people in this city to see why it’s the bloody best!
I’m afraid you’ve just got me this week, as Cloe’s moving house and is off the grid and Franks is super busy and important, but nonetheless here’s what I’m excited about this week.
Someone sound the shameless self promotion klaxon – she’s at it again!
This week Franks and I are busy ladies, as Duchess are playing not one, not two, but THREE events, so I thought I’d give you a quick run down of where we’ll be, just in case you fancied coming along or tuning in!
Thursday – we’ll be hosting The Duchess Dance Off at The Mother’s Ruin, where we’ll be playing you a mish mash of our favourite Moombahton, Soca, Dancehall and Electro tracks. Entry is free and Frankie’s promised a free pint to anyone who dutty wines for her. You can find out more on the Facebook page.
Friday – much of the same, but this time we’ll be playing at Southbank in Bedminster as part of The 4 DJs Phenomenon. Come down from 8 and show us your moves!
Saturday – The Passion All Female Takeover! From 10am – 12am community radio station PassionRadioBristol.com will play host to some of Bristol’s best up and coming female DJ talent, and guess what – we’re involved! Our show will be live form 10-11pm, but make sure you tune in throughout the day as some of these ladies are super talented and downright hilarious, and what’s more there’ll be tonnes of great competitions to enter. Even better, we’ll be raising funds for Bristol Sickle Cell & Thalassaemia Support Group, so it’s all for a great cause.
