Organisers of a popular festival in Bristol have shared details of this year’s event.
Bristol Open Doors gives people the chance to see inside some of the city’s most interesting buildings, with hands-on workshops, talks and expert-led tours.
This year’s event is due to take place from September 10 – 12, with dozens of events to choose from.

This year also sees the launch of the Explorer Wristband, which allows people to choose four adventures from a list of 67 to attend, as well as giving them access to free bus travel with First Bus during the festival.
The wristbands will cost £10 for an adult, £12 for an adult and up to three children, and £22 for two adults with three children.
Anna Rutherford, director at Design West, which organises the festival, said: “After an incredibly challenging few years for the heritage and culture sector, we’re supporting venues to re-open this September, and are asking audiences to join us in showing our city some love.
“Bristol Open Doors is organised by a charity and runs on a not-for-profit basis. Creativity and culture is at the heart of Bristol. This year we’ve worked with our city’s creatives to bring our heritage to life.”
This year’s programme includes a look inside Bristol Beacon, Temple Church and Circomedia, as well as the chance to discover the history of Motion by daylight.
There are also outdoor adventures to keep the festival Covid safe, including theatre at Ashton Court Mansion, five audio tours and a boat tour, and all of the events will have a bookable time slot.
Anna Rutherford said: “It’s been a busy lockdown for us as the team has worked with audio designers, artists, venues and historians to create a living history of the city’s spaces.
“This year, for the safety of our brilliant audiences, venues and volunteers, all experiences must be pre-booked online which allows us to keep to safe group numbers.
“We’re excited that this year’s programme gets you behind the scenes of some of Bristol’s cultural icons with plenty of surprises.”
