'Our industry is in the hands of the vaccination process' - The future of Bristol's famed festival scene
24th January 2021 (Bristol Post). Bristol simply wouldn't be the city it is without the wealth of fantastic events it plays host to. The likes of Harbour Festival, Bristol Balloon Fiesta, Upfest and Loves Saves The Day attract hundreds of thousands of visitors and provide a significant boost to the local economy. St Paul's Carnival alone contributed £5.1m in 2018, according to the event's UWE-commissioned impact report, and organisers of the recent #WeMakeEvents protest say there are 40,000 people working behind the scenes in live events in Bristol.
