It is now only a week until the start of Festival of the Future City, a three-day festival with over 50 different workshops, lectures and screenings which aims to be the largest public debate about the future of cities. Check out the programme and sign up to one of the many free and paid sessions now as some events are likely to get filled up.
As part of the festival, I will be delivering my annual State of the City Address on Wednesday. I will be updating the city on how I am delivering my pledges and my future vision for Bristol. Joining me will be our Youth Mayors, Eve and Jack, as well as out Poet Laureate, Miles Chambers. It will be followed by a panel discussion with James Brooks (National League of Cities), Carolyn Hassan (Knowle West Media Centre) and Julia Unwin (Civil Society Futures).
I hope that you can make it and that you are looking forward to it as much as I am.
