Sunshine for Bristol's Pride celebrations

Thousands of people have been taking part in Bristol's Pride celebrations today.

Singer Sophie Elis Bextor and boy band Blue are two of the headline acts performing at Castle Park.

The parade left Queen's Square at lunchtime and celebrations are expected to go on all night around the city.

Organisers say it's a chance for everyone to come together to promote diversity and be proud of who they are.

Retro cars to race at Castle Coombe

Classic cars will go head to head this weekend at the Castle Coombe circuit, in races which will feature vehicles from the 60's to the noughties.

Epitomising the spirit of the weekend is Sunday's 'Swinging 60's' event, which will see sports and saloon cars from that decade pitted against each other in a 40 minute race.

Pride Day back at Castle Park

Pride Day returns to Castle Park this Saturday, one year after an EDL protest prevented it from taking place at the same venue.

The day marks the culmination of the week long Bristol Pride festival and will see cultural music and arts events come to the park.

Food and drink festival returns to Bristol

This weekend will see Foodies Festival return to Bristol Harbourside for the third consecutive year.

Chefs including the Michelin-starred Martin Blunos will cook their signature dishes live and explain how people can prepare them at home.

I'm thrilled to be involved with the Foodies. Vibrant, lively and full of great food, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be.
