‘Matthew’ departed for
America (1998 that is, not
1498!).
The area around Sion Hill and
the Observatory was jam- The suspension bridge newly illuminated
packed with revellers enjoying
the concert on a rapidly-erected stage. Highlights included Bristol Choral Society
with a programme of rousing crowd-pleasers and Andy Sheppard conducting a
specially-commissioned work for 200 saxophones.
Then, along with the thousands thronging Cumber-
land Basin and the swing bridge below, we were able
to enjoy a massive firework display as the new sus-
pension bridge illuminations came on, right on cue.
Some of us also enjoyed the childish pleasure of walk-
ing down the middle of Brunel Way (‘the flyover’)
closed to traffic for the first time in living memory,
while The Matthew and the Balmoral and a host of
smaller craft crowded the Cumberland Basin.
Sunday provided some chilled-out relief from all the
excitement with an eclectic multi-media event directly
under the flyover.
‘Triangulation’
Preparing for the firework display combined music,
spoken word and projected images which
made clever use of the outdoor space to in-
voke a slightly surreal atmosphere, while the
traffic (now unimpeded) roared around on all
sides.
