Bristol Festival of Song Brochure

I've recently completed work on this year's Bristol Festival of Song brochure for Gathering Voices. This is an A5, 16 page brochure for the event that's now in its 4th year. Taking place between 11th - 20th October, the festival has expanded to include choirs and ensembles from Bath & N.E Somerset, N. Somerset, S. Glos. and Wilts.

As Festival Director Hannah Klewin explains "Total performers have increased by one third to over 3,500, ranging from first time singers to full time professionals. Over 100 choirs, groups, ensembles and solo artists will perform in over 70 venues.

"The festival welcomes old friends and hopes to entice new audiences with an eclectic mix of styles, including improv, jazz, world, classical, shanties, vocal percussion and barbershop.

"Our Sounding Boards & Workshop strand sees the return of the popular British Voice Association Road Show on vocal health, plus sessions on song arranging, close harmony for men, Britten for beginners and Bhajans. There are also networking/mentoring opportunities for choir administrators, vocal artists and performers.

"We have increased the free lunchtime concerts & recitals in city centre churches, early evening performances in Colston Hall Foyer and ‘Song Trail’ Open Rehearsals. The Harbourside ‘Song Raids’ have expanded to include a link with the final ‘Keep Sundays Special’ at Bristol Temple Meads.

"The festival finale is a glorious 12 hour marathon of song at St George’s on Sunday 20th featuring over 25 choirs and ensembles.

"We hope you will find both songs and singers that engage, delight and inspire you throughout this year’s Festival of Song."

This event is thoroughly worth checking out and comes highly recommended!!

Friends' Newsletter for the University of Bristol Botanic Garden: Autumn Issue 2013

I have recently completed the Autumn issue of the Friends' Newsletter for the University of Bristol Botanic Garden. This is an A5, 32 page, quarterly publication produced regularly by Graphic Bubble. This issue features an article on the Bee and Pollination Festival taking place this Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 September between 10am - 5pm. As the Curator Nick Wray says in the issue "This event will highlight the important role that bees have in pollinating plants and the numerous ways in which we can help them to carry out this vital role." I would definitely recommend visiting the garden for this fantastic event!
See below for some of the pages from the latest issue.
