As the cooler months creep in around the corner, we’re looking at what you can see and do in the area this autumn.
Diversity – Ignite
Where dance meets circus. The show will take the combination of street dance and circus to a whole new level and is coming to Blaise Castle Estate this October!
A big top theatre is being erected on Saturday, October 13 for a show that the whole family will enjoy.
Tickets and information can be found here.
Almondsbury Garden Centre is looking for people to help them track down 20 pernickety pumpkins that have escaped their patch.
From 20th October to 5th November 2018, pumpkins will be hidden throughout the centre and all participant children will get sweet prizes – no trick!
Donations to St Peter’s Hospice are being asked for in return, and every child will be handed an activity sheet to find the hidden pumpkins.
Blaise Castle Estate has loads on offer at all times of the year, but make sure you pay a visit in the changing autumn months and explore the woodlands.
Kings Weston Estate is also a must-see with around 300 acres of beautiful greenery to explore. Look out for the sundial, lily pond, grotto, oldest avenue of lime trees in the city and of course kids will love the conkers.
For a list of other autumn walks around the rest of the city, check out this article.
