GeekOut Media’s Bristol Local Guide – March 2018
At GeekOut Media, we look out for the very best events that are taking place in the coming weeks and months. Recently, I managed to hear about some pretty cool events, all of which can be found via Facebook. So, if you’re looking for something to do at the end of the month, then check out our local guide to three Bristol events. If you’re a geek of any sort, there may be an event that suits you within this article, so do read on and at the end of the article, if you know of any other events happening in Bristol that you think should be mentioned, then drop us a comment!
Agony Auncles of Science – 27th March @ 19:00-22:00
The Agony Auncles of Science are a science based agony aunt/uncle styled event, where the host, Auncle SCary, will use science to solve problems that you submit, either prior to the event or live on the day. Taking place at The Crofters Rights in Stokes Croft, this is a small walk from the Bristol Bear Pit, or is easily accessible from any bus that goes along Gloucester Road and into, or out of, the City Centre. Tickets are only £5.50 and the event starts at 7pm, finishing off at 10pm. Not a bad price for a fun event in a nice venue in Stokes Croft, so if you’re able to jump on one of the 70 line of busses, you’ll be able to get to the Agony Auncles of Science event pretty easily!
Aliens of the Art World Exhibition – 29th March until 4th April @ 18:00
Lovers of sci-fi and art would certainly get a kick out of this queer sci-fi exhibition, featuring fine art such as the one above. If queer culture piques your interest, or if sci-fi is your jams, then this will certainly be an exhibition you do not want to miss out on. Taking place for 6 days at the Centrespace Gallery, this is an event that’s really easy to get to if you’re in the City Centre. Opening night (29th March) will take place between 5pm – 9pm, where there will be two special performances, which will help to bring the whole event together. So if you’re interested in the creation of a home world by some fine artists, do come check out the Aliens of the Art World Exhibition!
BristolCon Fringe – 19th March @ 18:00
Friends of us here at GeekOut Media, BristolCon hold regular fringe nights. These are nights where local authors will come in and do readings of their work. You also get to hang out with the authors, as well as the crew who make BristolCon so special. There’s no entry price, although it’s now taking place at the Gryphon from 7pm. It’s free to attend and it’s a group for Sci-Fi & Fantasy fans alike, so seriously, do head on down there and say hello to the crew!
For those of you who don’t remember BristolCon, they are a local convention for all Sci-Fi and Fantasy – and they’re looking to expand their networks further. So if you do anything relating to Sci-Fi & Fantasy, then you will definitely want to check them out!
That’s all for this month, please be sure to go and attend as many local events as you can, as without your support, these events may never happen again! I’d like to give a shout out to all three of our events for this month – The three organisers I’ve spoke to have all been incredibly graceful with allowing me to write about their upcoming shows/gatherings. Check them out and support local as much as you can. Meanwhile, if you intend to go to any of these, or if you’ve been to one similar, then let us know your thoughts in the comments below, or over on Facebook and Twitter.
