SEE: ArtOfficial Illumination Exhibition in the Crypt of St. John the Baptist Church

Despite the amazing sunshine, if you're stuck for ideas of what to do this weekend pay a visit to the spectacular medieval Crypt of St. John the Baptist Church, currently home to an array of student artwork.

Some of the strongest works on show are portraits, particularly an oil painting of an old man by Kathy Cox, an atmospheric depiction of a gentleman with a shadow enveloping his face. His leathery hands, appearing unusually almost as flesh gloves, further convey the years and life he has endured.

All donations go straight to the Bristol Refugee Rights Hardship Fund and the exhibition runs all weekend between 11:00 and 18:00. Take the opportunity to explore this unique building and artwork!
