About this Event

Ali Vowles hosts her very own chat show, which includes chatting to characters from around Bristol’s harbourside with music and fun aboard the convivial MV Balmoral moored outside the MShed.

On the sofa on June 21st we'll be joined by two guests; Trish Johnson, Bridge Master on Clifton Suspension Bridge and Donna Speed, CEO of We the Curious. Expect an entertaining evening with insights from those whose venues overlook and touch upon the harbour.

Gangplank open at 7pm and guests will be introduced at 7.30pm. There will be an interval followed by a Q& A where you have the opportunity to quiz the guests followed by live music. Snacks will be available at the MV Balmoral bar and you are welcome to order food to be delvered to the MV Balmoral after 8.45pm.
