Cancelled due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
At the Clifton Suspension Bridge Trust, the health and wellbeing of our visitors, volunteers and staff are our number one concern. We have been closely following the guidance of the Government, NHS and Public Health England and as doctors and scientists are now recommending that everyone avoids large social gatherings we have decided we have to close our Visitor Centre and cancel all tours until mid April in order to play our part in stopping the spread of the virus.
As a not-for-profit charity, it's hard for us to close. We want to do everything we can to support STEM Learning as we all deal with something that's never happened before. We are very sorry that we have to close our doors. We ask you for your support and patience as we navigate our way through these unprecedented times and consider different options.
Taking place biennially across Bristol, and returning for its fourth edition in 2020, Bristol New Music proposes an adventurous exploration of the city through sound, with artists from across the radius of contemporary music gathering for four days of newly commissioned works, sonic responses to rarely used spaces, landmark concert hall programmes, club nights, gallery exhibitions and screenings. Bristol New Music is a collaboration between five key organisations in the city: Colston Hall, Arnolfini, Spike Island, St George’s Bristol and the University of Bristol.
Kelly Jayne Jones is a Manchester based artist. From working in DIY experimental noise, her practice has expanded to include dance, gesture, sonic drawings, stone sculpture and film scores.

Her collaborative work with Haris Epaminonda, Chimera, was shown at 58th Venice Biennale 2019.
