Bristol life

Bristol is a city buzzing with art and culture, from the graffiti on Nelson Street and the trip-hop heritage in Stoke’s Croft’s bars to the boundary-pushing art galleries on the waterfront. Bristol is also recognised as a city of circus, with the highest concentration of circus performers living anywhere in the UK.

Bristol has consistently topped polls as one of the nicest, or hippest, or friendliest places to live in the UK, and with two universities based in the city, and Bath Spa just down the road, there’s a busy and bustling student scene.

At Circomedia we think it’s vital that you engage in live circus and physical theatre. In Bristol, you can get involved in the city’s groundbreaking circus festival, watch innovative and exciting performances at our venue in St Paul’s, and even perform at one of the many cultural festivals that fill up the summer’s weekends.

We love it here in Bristol and know you will too.
