Bristol Cycle Festival hooks up with Make Sunday Special this weekend

MakeCity centre locations will be helping to demonstrate why Bristol is ‘the best place to live’ in the UK with the third Make Sunday Special of 2014 on Sunday 6th July.

Corn Street, Small Street, St Nicholas Market and Castle Park will be hosting events, activities and performances to entertain and engage the young, old and families.

Make Sunday Special has linked up with Bristol Cycle Festival this Sunday. Highlights include Carnivelo – an opportunity to dress up, create a bike float or join in the carnival as you are – starting at 2pm in Castle Square. This year it’s joined by Strictly Cycling, a bike dance performance by Bicycle Ballet who will also be running a workshop for visually impaired people at 11am in Castle square.

More stall holders and food outlets will be open in St Nicholas Market and First Bus will continue with their discounted £5 family ticket for travel on the Make Sunday Special days.

Other events in the city to enjoy this weekend include the Wimbledon Men’s final being screened in Millennium Square, the Henbury Steam Locomotive running trips along the Bristol Harbour Railway and the Bristol Comedy Garden in Queen’s Square.

Mayor George Ferguson said:

“With the Tour of Britain coming to Bristol in September, we are upping our cycling credentials another notch, so I’m delighted we’ve been able to hook up with the cycling festival to make the centre of the city available for events. If you’ve not sampled a special Sunday before, do come and soak up the atmosphere of a truly vibrant city centre with entertainment, food and activities for all, of whatever age. It is part of what makes Bristol the most liveable city in the UK!”
