This Weekend's Trending Clubnights

We started Headfirst in 2008 and since then we have seen Bristol's weekend nightlife programme week upon week. Currently Bristol's clubnights are some of the most diverse and innovative in the UK, ranging from small venues like Cosies and The Island to larger clubs like Motion and Blue Mountain. The best of this weekend's club events are below.

“Get ready for the highly anticipated return of the South Glos Food and Drink Festival in September! Mark your calendars for the weekend of Saturday 7th September, and Sunday 8th September 2023, as we gather at the Bristol and Bath Science Park, BS16 7FR. Join us for a delightful weekend of culinary delights and beverages, all conveniently located right at your doorstep- and the best part tickets are completely FREE!”

“In this weekend intensive we will begin by learning about the alignment of the knee joint. We will have access to a model skeleton as well as images, information and discussion. This theoretical exploration will serve as a foundation for sensory exploration of functional alignment. Through the weekend we may expand our view to the relationship of the knee to the ankle, hip and spine. The overall aim is for each individual to build personal sensory references of integrated joint function to apply in their life as a mover, whatever form that takes.”
