Lullaby Ride

The festival will finish with a magical, illuminated Lullaby Ride brought to you by Sustrans and Luke Jerram, the artist behind the Park Street slide.

The Lullaby is an entourage of bikes decorated with twinkling LED lighting and kitted out with audio equipment, playing gentle lullaby music that will ride through quiet residential streets at children’s bedtime. Places on the ride are limited; visit www.sustrans.org.uk/events in May to book.

The festival takes place in Queen Square, Bristol on Saturday 22 August from 12:00pm to 8:00pm. For more details about visiting the event, go to www.sustrans.org.uk/events.
