Bristol Balloon Fiesta - and our love of balloons

This weekend sees the annual Bristol Balloon Fiesta, with thousands of visitors flocking to Ashton Court Estate to see the balloons, the glow and other spectacular events.

Bristol and balloons go hand in hand, and many of our artists and makers use them as inspiration in their work. It's not surprising really as if you live in Bristol, during the Summer months, a balloon or two will always make an appearance.

If you, like many, woke early this morning to see the mass ascent of hundreds of balloons filling the skies, you will probably have fallen for their charms.  Why not, this weekend, pop (no pun intended) into Cabots Circus and visit our pop-up shops for some balloon inspired jewellery and artwork.
