All the world’s a stage…’. But what if instead of ‘the world’ it was Bristol, and instead of ‘a stage’ – it was a film set? You can see where we’re going with this…

Witness The Natural Theatre Company’s comedic interactive performance, and discover the sights and sites of Bristol through a hilarious performance walking tour beginning at the M Shed and running to SS Great Britain. Watch a new film unfold as we meet surprising characters along the city streets.

Have you met the Director? This big shot American has done it all; big budget hits, working with the stars, he knows what he wants and he expects to get it. You must have heard of Ashley Down, the most famous actor in the land (and also rival of the glamorous Tiverton Parkway…) – he’s simply the best at all the roles, darling.

Be prepared to laugh your socks off as mayhem unfolds during this utterly bonkers hour of fun and frivolity. Do excuse us, it’s all hands on set at Banksy Studios…
