“You won’t look at Isambard Kingdom Brunel or the Clifton Suspension Bridge in quite the same way ever again after seeing this piece.”
In the Year of Engineering and Centenary of Women’s Suffrage, Show of Strength are bringing us the opportunity to learn more about Bristol pioneer Sarah Guppy, the first woman to patent a bridge and formally design one.
‘Sarah Guppy: The Bridge, The Bed, The Truth‘ continues tonight at the Hen and Chicken in Bristol, with further showings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Find out what to expect in this excellent review from Bristol 24/7: “an inspiring and witty homage to someone who deserves a far more central place in Bristol’s – and Britain’s – commercial and industrial history”.
Sarah Guppy: The Bridge, The Bed, The Truth is on at the Hen & Chicken in Bedminster on 6th and 7th November at 8.30 pm, at the Create Centre in Hotwells on 8th and 9th November at 4 pm and 6.30 pm and The Savoy Theatrein Monmouth on 10th November at 2 pm. The performance lasts an hour and the first night will be attended by the Lord Mayor. Cllr Cleo Lake.
