Bristol – Abbey (Protestant Church) – Psalm 148: “O Praise The Lord of Heaven”

Bristol Cathedral began life as a Norman abbey church, became an Anglican Cathedral after the Dissolution in 1539, and was almost entirely rebuilt in the neo-Gothic style in the late 19th century. History: Bristol Cathedral began as Abbey in 1140. The chapterhouse, still standing, dates from 1165. The Norman abbey church was rebuilt from 1298 onwards, but the new church was still incomplete at the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539 when its nave was demolished. In 1542 the church was made the cathedral of a new Diocese of Bristol and was dedicated to the Holy and Undivided Trinity. The nave was eventually built during the 19th century and the building was completed by two towers at the west end in 1888.

Redcliffe (Bristol) – Anglican Church

Redcliffe is an Anglican Parish Church in Bristol. The church is the second-largest parish church in England and the tallest building in Bristol. It is so grand that visitors often mistake it for Bristol Cathedral. “The fairest, goodliest and most famous parish church in England.” — Queen Elizabeth I, visiting in 1574 “The pride of Bristol and the western land.” — Thomas Chatterton, poet “One of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in England.” — Frommer’s England Names: Church of England Type of site: Parish church Faith: Christian Faith (Anglican Church) Status: Active Dates: 12th and 15th centuries Architecture: Gothic with some Norman Location: 12 Colston Parade, Bristol, England BS1 6SP Phone: 01179/291 487 History: Some parts of the church date back to the beginning of the 12th century. However, most parts are the work of 15th century masons. The strong vertical lines of the gothic church direct the eye upwards giving the impression of great space and height. Much of the medieval church decoration was lost during the Reformation and the English Civil War, and little of the original stained glass remains. Most of the higher portions went untouched, but others were severely damaged. In some cases the windows were impossible to repair, and clear glass was eventually introduced to replace the missing scenes.

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta is held during August in Bristol, England. Teams from the UK and other parts of the world bring their hot air balloons to the site and participate in mass ascents where as many as 100 balloons may launch at a time.

The event is one of the largest in Europe and it is common to have crowds of over 100,000 on each of the four days of the festival. It takes place in a large country estate Ashton Court. Mass launches are made twice a day, at 6am and 6pm, subject to weather conditions.

One popular attraction is the night glow, when balloons are inflated and glow to music after dark. These are held on the opening Thursday night at approx 9:30pm, followed by a spectacular fireworks display. There is another night glow at the same time followed by the fireworks on the Saturday night. Some people see these as the highlight of the fiesta. Another attraction is the large number of special shaped balloons which take off.

As one of the worlds leading balloon makers, Cameron Balloons are near to the fiesta site, in Bedminster, it is fitting that most of the best loved special shaped balloons are made in the city. Favourites in the past years are Rupert the Bear, The Scottish Piper, Bertie Bassett, The Flying Hen and The Jaguar Car.

In the past, the fiesta used to be held in the second week of September, but due to cancellations of flights and the muddy ground because of bad weather, it has been moved in the start of August. This had had a great effect as more flights manage to fly, cancellations are now normally due to high winds.

The nightglow is one of the most popular parts of the fiesta.

In 2003, the weight of crowds returning from the Balloon Fiesta and Ashton Court festival put such a great strain on the Clifton Suspension Bridge that it was decided to close the bridge to all traffic, including pedestrians, during these events from 2004 onwards.
