A SOAP opera on Bristol's harbourside and a two-week experience designed especially for the residents of the city are just two of the highlights of Mayfest 2011, which is running at the moment.
Now firmly established as an important fixture in the UK’s cultural calendar, it takes over venues and unusual sites across the city to present the very best local, national and international theatre and performance.
This year it is working in collaboration with more venues than ever before, staging a medley of theatrical events at Bristol Old Vic, Arnolfini, Tobacco Factory, The Brewery, Circomedia, The Cube, Colston Hall and many more sites across Bristol.
Wrapped around all of this is a programme of discussions, parties, workshops and talks for both artists and audiences. The full programme for the event, which runs until Sunday, is available via www.mayfestbristol.co.uk
