Save Whiteladies Cinema

Development plans look to be getting the go ahead to turn the old cinema building on Whiteladies Road into five flats and a gym. It would be wonderful if instead the building was restored as an independent cinema, theatre or arts space, celebrating it's rich history and sustaining part of Bristol's vibrant creative culture. If you'd like to see the restoration of this lovely building, please just take a minute out of your day to voice your objection to the planned development at ('make a public comment' to register an objection, which can be found under Documents).

Bristol Old Vic

Bristol Old Vic are presenting two ATC productions at the Wickham next week, 24 – 28 April.

Crave is a seminal play by ex-Bristol student Sarah Kane, a ground-breaking work that challenges theatrical conventions.  Illusions is the English language premiere of a new comedy by Russia’s foremost playwright and screenwriter.  It’s a great and rare opportunity to see these two texts produced in the UK.

They’re offering a 2 for 1 ticket deal, which means both shows would be just £8 for students.  See details here:

We hope to see you there!  You can book online or call Box Office on 0117 987 7877 or email


So, our new theme is Flawed! 

Just for some inspiration, here is a pretentious, but fitting quote:

"He saw that all the struggles of life were incessant, laborious, painful, that nothing was done quickly, without labor, that it had to undergo a thousand fondlings, revisings, moldings, addings, removings, graftings, tearings, correctings, smoothings, rebuildings, reconsiderings, nailings, tackings, chippings, hammerings, hoistings, connectings — all the poor fumbling uncertain incompletions of human endeavor. They went on forever and were forever incomplete, far from perfect, refined, or smooth, full of terrible memories of failure and fears of failure, yet, in the way of things, somehow noble, complete, and shining in the end."
