As Brexit talk dominates the headlines, a brilliant weekend festival celebrates cultural diversity.

Tobacco Factory Theatres and Circomedia welcome performers from across the continent as Birmingham’s acclaimed European arts festival comes to Bristol.

With the impending political separation of the UK from Europe, the Best Of BE Festival will celebrate the wealth and diversity of European culture and celebrate cross-continental creativity.

Companies from Italy, Switzerland and Germany will take to the stage and perform a variety of genre-bending and border-crossing circus, dance, theatre and visual arts shows.

The Best Of BE Festival will be at Circomedia, in Portland Square, at 7pm on May 5-6.

Tickets, priced £10-12, are available from 01179 477288 or online via www.circomedia.com
