'Rave On For The Avon' Preview Screening at Bristol Aquarium

Experience the heartwarming journey of Bristol’s local community in a captivating feature-length documentary. This unique film, set to screen at Bristol's largest cinema screen, offers a glimpse into the spirited efforts of Bristolians to preserve their beloved bathing spot.

'Rave On For The Avon', which premiered at PYTCH last month, is back for another preview screening on Thursday, 25th April. Set against the vibrant backdrop of Bristol's culture, this documentary showcases the resilience, creativity, and indomitable spirit of Bristolians in the face of environmental challenges.

"It's like being in the middle of some turneresque piece of English countryside. It's stunning and captured beautifully." John Darvall on BBC Radio Bristol

Hosted by ‘Bristol’s coolest person,’ comedian/writer/actress/wildswimmer/all round legend Jayde Adams, the screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film's campaigners Conham Bathers and Director of the film Charlotte Sawyer.

Join the makers of the film for a special preview screening on Thursday, 25th April 2024, at Bristol's former IMAX cinema, hidden within Bristol Aquarium and fall in love with our Avon and the people fighting to protect it, the Bristol way!

Experience the full beauty of the film before its general release on the largest cinema screen in Bristol!
