Bristol puts on a weekend of events celebrating the life and work of one of the city’s most famous sons: the Hollywood actor and style icon Cary Grant.
Cary Comes Home for the Weekend Festival is a celebration of Cary Grant’s Bristol roots, with the aim to develop new audiences for his films and recreate the much loved golden age of cinema-going.
Festival attractions will include screenings of several of Grant’s best loved films, with a special focus on those directed by Alfred Hitchcock; a Looking for Archie walking tour of Bristol places most closely associated with the star; a cream tea plus talk at the hotel where Cary often entertained his Mum and expert-led panel discussions and lectures.
There will also be a screening of the award-winning documentary BECOMING CARY GRANT followed by discussion and a closing gala event featuring a film, music, dancing and a prize competition to choose which attendees best match Cary Grant and his leading ladies for cool and chic.
Ticket prices start at £5, rising to £20, and will go on sale in mid September.
