A person and a child are sat making music together - both using percussive instruments.

To mark the 650th anniversary of Bristol and celebrate what makes our city special, we invite children under 5 and their grown ups, to join trombonist Raph and percussionist Harriet on The Magical Musical Balloon Adventure.

Light the burners and climb aboard our hot air balloon as we zoom over Bristol’s roof tops. Packed with singing, wiggling and plenty of percussion to shake and rattle, these 45 minute workshops will delight little and big people alike.
