Things to do in Bristol this week, Sep 25-Oct 1 2017

Grayson Perry doesn’t hold back on the title of his show which arrives at the Arnolfini this week. In The Most Popular Art Exhibition Ever!, the charismatic artist asks how contemporary art can best address a diverse cross section of society.

Bristol Cocktail Week returns for its seventh annual outing with an eclectic lineup of events with highlights including an evening of champagne cocktails, a lesson in how to make the best drinks at home, and a beer and whisky showdown.

Twenty years after it was first broadcast, Brass Eye director Michael Cumming will be presenting previously unseen material at the Cube – where he’ll also be present for a Q&A – described as “part documentary, part artwork”.

This is also the first week of our new website, so please bear with us while we continue to make even more improvements. Visit the What’s On section for Bristol’s best and most comprehensive listings pages.
