Bristol’s Lord Mayor and PROPS students will be doing the honours, and then
we’ll all be off to be the first to ‘do’ the Trail with Trustees as guides.
We’ll finish at the Arnolfini in time for a screening of Aardmans Pirates!
at 3pm (Tickets still available @ just £5 Bristol Ticket Office).
The day will finish with two sailings on board the Matthew (a family one at
5pm and an adult one at 6pm) – for availability please go to the Matthew Box
