Events

Join hapless Christmas event planners Holly & Noel from ‘Yule Be Merry: carefully curated Christmas creations’ as they attempt to assemble a 12 Days of Christmas themed event to a tight deadline for a demanding boss.

In the face of insurmountable tech glitches, escaped poultry and unavoidably delayed ballet dancers, Noel and Holly are determined to press on regardless.

After all, they do have the pear tree.

A free audio walk available at any time. Launched 1st May 2021 for Bristol Walk Fest.


Discover the amazing hidden history of Manor Woods Valley, a small patch of ancient woodland in Bishopsworth.


Content is appropriate for children aged 8+ to adult (there's nothing alarming for younger ones, though).

Complete this audio walk at your own pace free of charge at any time.

The audio walk is embedded in a free walking app called Go Jauntly. You can download it via the link below. Short fragments of audio we've made will be added to certain waypoints on the walk by 1st May 2021. When you're at that spot in the walk simply click and listen.

You can also access a free map of the walk's route courtesy of our friends at Manor Woods Valley Group.


We advise you enjoy our audio walk through headphones. If coming with children who don't have their own phone, we advise the use of headphone splitters so an adult and child can listen together.

The walk is circular, just under one mile, and is on varying terrain with some hills. It is not suitable for pushchairs. Access is from the 75 bus, getting off just past Bishopsworth Library. The entrance to Manor Valley Woods is opposite St Peter's Rise Convenience Store, 6A St Peter's Rise, BS13 7LU.  Dogs on leads are welcome.


This audio walk has been funded by a Magic Little Grant from Localgiving and the Neighbourly Community Fund.
