Recent Productions 12 for 2012 — A Diamond Jubilee Trail for Bristol

Stroll around Bristol’s Harbourside and discover twelve fascinating tales.

Six writers and four actors have been inspired by Redcliffe Caves, the launch of the Miranda Guinness – the last boat built at the great Charles Hill shipyard – and a host of other local stories.

By listening to all twelve stories as you walk round the harbourside, you’ll gain a unique insight into Bristol’s history, particularly linked to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s 60 years on the throne, all as seen through the eyes and told through the voices of Bristol people.
