The Wow Gorillas event launched this morning at 11:15 am and Carole and I were lucky enough to have places on the Gorilla Flotilla. We set off from the centre in two boats with a selection of the Wow Gorillas aboard and floated through the harbour, much to the astonishment of passers-by.
We then made a stop outside the newly opened M-Shed for the Pyronaught boat, complete with spiderman gorilla, to give us a water show. The trip was finished off with a tour around the harbourside finishing at the Arnolfini, which is the location of our Gorilla the S-Express. Nicholls Stevens have sponsored a gorilla, painted by local artist SEPR, to celebrate our 25th anniversary in business.
The Gorillas are going up today and tomorrow all around Bristol. There is a walking tour taking in the Gorillas and we have some guides in the office for any clients who fancy taking in some of the art while they are in town.
For those clients who might be interested we are hosting our own gorilla walk on the 14th July. This will be an evening event starting at 6:30 and taking a short tour around the gorillas in the centre of Bristol. We will be taking in some local history and providing information on the artists.
