The Long John Silver Trust has had the great honour of being involved in a new production from the BBC entitled “Books that made Britain – Bristol, Sin City”.
It features our own Treasure Island along with three other books that originated in Bristol, the first two at least taking in a fair chunk of Bristol’s maritime past, especially piracy and the slave trade.
The screening is on Sunday 16th October 2016 at 15.45pm on BBC1 West.
If you miss the screening it will be available on http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0801pg0 after the transmission date.
10am, Thursday 13th October 2016 is launch date for our Treasure Island Trail Audio App launch.
Supported by a Wellbeing Grant from the Cabot, Clifton & Clifton East Neighbourhood Partnership, huge thanks must go to them for making our sensory Trail a reality.
Radio Bristol’s top presenter Steve Yabsley has agreed to help with the launch and students from PROPS, who have been with us all the way making it happen, will be there touring the Trail along with Long John Silver Trustees and dignitaries, enjoying the story of Stevenson’s immortal classic.
If you’re free that morning for a one hour jaunt, please come along and join us.
We’re meeting at the start of our Trail at Black Spot ‘A’ – the Merchant Ventureres Almshouses, King Street (Broad Quay end).
See you there, mateys …
