Online Series: Angels in Bristol with Bristol Old Vic

Online by Bristol Old Vic
Angels in Bristol - Bristol Old Vic


A mysterious star has appeared over the slopes of Southmead...
A mighty exodus brings hope of a promised land named Weston-super-Mare...
A great ark begins to take shape on the waters of Bristol’s harbour...

Tom Morris and Vanessa Kisuule (Bristol City Poet 2018–20) have united with schools and communities across Bristol and the region to create a truly Bristolian version of The Greatest Story Ever Told. This is the Nativity, but not as you know it, retold as a story of miraculous hope in a city aching for change.

Created from the soaring poetry of Vanessa Kisuule, with music from Dan Jones and Guy Hughes, and imagery by Limbic Cinema, Angels in Bristol will be delivered as nine short stories, landing in your inbox every day from 20–28 Dec, to be viewed from the comfort of your sofa, in the warm glow of your Christmas Tree.

If you register, every day from 20 to 28 Dec you will be sent via email a new short episode of Angels in Bristol to watch. Registration closes at 5pm on 18 Dec. If you forget to register, you will be able to watch the episodes on the Bristol Old Vic YouTube channel - the episodes will disappear at midnight 5 Jan as the Christmas season comes to an end.
