Arnolfini - est 1961

Bristol Harbour Regatta
Saturday and Sunday 20 & 21 June
This year Arnolfini is organising a number of special events for Regatta weekend, both inside and outside the building. During the Saturday afternoon, the Rosemary Butcher Dance Company will be giving an outdoor performance on the quayside. This follows their evening performances of “Shell” on the previous Thursday and Friday.
On the Saturday evening, the Bristol jazz group Spirit Level performs in the Arnolfini theatre from 8 pm, and on Sunday afternoon, the Bristol Creative Dance Company directed by Marie Ware present a light-hearted performance especially prepared for the Regatta called “Riverside Romp”.
Finally, at various times on Saturday and Sunday, the Bristol Musicians’ Co-op Marching Band will parade the quaysides playing their own particular off-beat “scratch” versions of popular tunes.
For exact times of afternoon quayside dance events, see the official Regatta programme.
