The last weekend of August saw us taking a trip to Bristol’s harbourside for Bristol’s first showcase event of urban arts and sports. The sun even turned up on the Saturday, pulling in the crowds to watch some of the UK’s leading skaters and BMX riders, mountain bike trial riders, beatboxers, parkour athletes, graffiti artists and breakdancers perform, compete and lead workshops.
The two-day event also included a specially-commissioned dramatic show, by the internationally-renowned arts company Cirque Bijou, which featured a mix of urban art forms, circus, pyrotechnics and large-scale video, which despite some initial technical hitches was the highlight of the weekend.
It was a great weekend, lets hope it was a big enough success to bring it back next year.
