Can't find any mention of this on here which is surprising

There is a huge new exhibition of Banksy's work at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery - approx 100 pieces of work, some from the New York show last year and some new.

Has transformed the museum and funded and organised by Banksy himself.

Looks great and on for the next 3 months

I'm planning to go it looks amazing, especially the modified version of the 'pet shop'.

I live in London but have friends I can stay with in bristol.

Saw it on the news last week. Desperately trying to think of a reason to go to Bristol now.

What more of a reason do you need? grin

I wish we lived nearer as I would love to go! I have a Bansky print on my wall and I love it.

I had this name as a namechange ages ago but have never used it, until now!!

I'm definately going to get up there and see this new exhib.

Will take my brilliant Brother, who was kind enough to buy me a mahoosive Banksy canvas print for me for my birthday smile

Have you got a link with details ILoveBanksy? <lazy emoticon>

We're all going. Bristol Museum is a favourite place anyway.

I'm going to see this in the next couple of weeks, it looks fascinating.

Have a look on YouTube. Search something like Banksy in Bristol and there is a tour of the show and chat to the director

Or look at Bristol Museums website

Sorry crap at links!

Well we went to Bristol today - DH wanted to see it, we reckoned DC would like it too. Queue was a mile long at 10am. Not much smaller at 4.30 and the museum closes at 5 hmm

So we just has a mooch and some lunch. Will go back in the week during the hols.

Quick question to any Bristolians - I can see that you are well-served for clothes and eateries, but where the hell do you buy anything else? I was amazed. Haven't been shopping in Brizzle for years and I'm sure I remember being able to buy all kinds of things in days gone by.
