Pick of the Week: History Beneath Your Feet

Rife Guide Picks of the Week

Find out what’s on Rife Guide this week, including a free guided walk around the oldest bits of Bristol.

Do you really know Bristol? Here’s an amazing chance to get out and about in the city, and see some bits that the tourists normally skip over. Bristol has a long and fascinating history, the evidence of which is still all around us. This week on Thursday, join the M Shed’s history buffs on a free guided walk around the oldest parts of Bristol, taking in the ruins of the castle, the old city walls and more.

So, whether you’re an expert on all things historic and want to chat to like-minded people, or you’re just interested to find out about the secrets that lie beneath the modern streets, come along to get out of the house and learn some new things.

You don’t need to book in advance and it doesn’t cost any money. The walk starts from M Shed on Thursday at 10.30am and will last around two hours. Bring a brolly if it looks like rain as this is an outdoor event and will go ahead in all weather. Full details can be found here, on the Rife Guide

Support more young people to have their voices heard

Rife is Watershed‘s online magazine created for young people, by young people.

We offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers. Rife has reached over 8,000 young people through our workshops, over 220 young people have made stuff for Rife on topics ranging from mental health to identity to baked beans, and last year, over 200,000 people visited our website.

In these complex and uncertain times hearing from and supporting young people who are advocating for social change and contributing fresh perspectives has never been so important. 

Through supporting Rife you can ensure that this important work continues and that more young people have their voices heard.
