Charity Contribution

This year we are raising money for the Pathogenesis Imperfecta Team at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, through the Above and Beyond Charity ( This team is a centre of excellence for conditions such as "Brittle Bones", providing support across a wide region. There is not only a need to improve the treatment of this life changing condition, but also to raise awareness and understanding of brittle bones, as new cases can be tragically misunderstood and treated as signs of abuse which can lead to children being taken away from their parents.

Please Note:

A small part of the premises are not fully accessible to those with mobility problems due to a flight of stairs. Therefore we will make no charge for entry to the show for those with such difficulties.
