Cultural March

Bristol's top cultural hotspots will host exciting events in March, adding to the city's thriving arts scene.

Green Ginger's Intronauts

Photo exhibitions are currently on display at three maternity wards in the city’s hospitals, featuring shots of women exercising, to highlight the importance of physical activity. 

This is the latest initiative celebrating International Women’s Day, by campaign group Bristol Girls Can, which encourages women to get active.

The exhibitions are at South Bristol Hospital, Southmead Hospital and St Michael’s Hospital, and feature pictures taken by Bristol-based photographer Jeni Nott. 

In mid-March (16-17), an environmental festival will be held at live music venue Motion, focusing on the effects of climate change, with topics such as renewable energy, water conservation and zero waste under discussion.   

The first Spring Uprising festival, run by campaign group Extinction Rebellion, will feature ecological-themed art work, a photography exhibition, bands and an ethical food quarter.

Also this month, Bristol-based theatre company Ginger Green will end its successful UK run of shows in its hometown, performing a dystopian sci-fi fantasy story at the historic Tobacco Factory Theatres. 

Intronauts runs from March 20, with a mix of classic sci-fi references, visual comedy and experimental puppetry.
