On 4 May, St Pauls Carnival will take over Bristol Old Vic’s front of house spaces to celebrate the two month countdown to this year’s carnival and join the smash hit production of Barber Shop Chronicles as it powers into Bristol Old Vic as part of its UK tour.
Barber Shop Chronicles is one of the decade’s most successful plays. It takes place in 6 barber shops in 6 different cities across the globe and is a joyous celebration of masculinity, fatherhood and identity. Described by The Guardian as “one of the best 25 plays of the decade” it is a riot of laughter, dance and music and feels like the perfect fit with St Pauls Carnival, now in its 51st year, creating a great moment to bring the two events together for a day of fun, food and festivities.
Beginning at midday on Saturday 4 May, this explosion of arts and culture will feature African-inspired DJ sets, drumming and song, with craft activities throughout the foyer, and an Afrikan-Caribbean menu served by Bristol’s latest food hotspot, 1766 Bar & Kitchen.
This free event is wrapped around two performances of Barber Shop Chronicles at 2.30pm and 7.30pm with tickets available from £11.50.
