The Gates of Bristol

Inspired by an ancient image showing the four medieval gates of Bristol, The Basilisk will take you on a tantalising journey through each of these gates.

Following pathways both sumptuous and simple, they bring their signature fiery improvisational approach to music that might have been heard on the streets of the city in medieval times. A cast of merchants, sailors, drinkers, lovers, saints and sinners will accompany you on your way.

Seating is unreserved, tickets are £15. Free admission for accompanied under‑16s.
