Looks like we can go and sleep with or in our bubble and also go to the shops again this week. The question is, who is in any fit state to be seen out on the streets again? For those of you seriously not feeling too keen on the idea you’ll be glad to hear that there’s still a lot going on that you don’t need to get dressed for.

Stuff we spotted and thought we would pass on
We the Curious
Bristol! We’re inviting YOU to test some of our brand new exhibits – online!
Behind the scenes at We The Curious, we’ve been busy for months, designing and building lots of exciting new exhibits, all based around the curious questions of the people of Bristol. Dozens of our visitors – adults and children – have enjoyed testing some of these exhibits out, helping us to understand what works and what doesn’t. It’s important to us that we get lots of voices involved in this process, so that together we can build something amazing and for everyone.
