Happy World Productions is BACK and very pleased to announce our latest fundraiser – a benefit for The Bristol Bike Project.

ALL monies raised from the evening will be given to The Bristol Bike Project.

The evening will consist of two cycle touring talks and some music

There will also be a raffle, tea + cake and an information stall. Plus more warmth and good vibes than you can shake a stick at. And a big one at that.

Music :
Mog Fry first played at a Happy World Productions event in 2019 and has very kindly agreed to come back a second time. We are once again lucky to see her playing in such an intimate setting – appearances from her are rare which belies a truly extraordinary talent. To quote from her website;
 “Mog Fry plays elemental nature inspired songs on wooden flute, baritone ukulele and cuatro, based on poems by the imagist poets of the early 20th Century.”
This alone does not describe her extraordinarily beautiful voice and stripped bare tunes.
Mog will start playing at 7.00 pm.

Talk 1:
In 2019 Jack Rimmington decided to cycle from his home in North Yorks. to Sardinia for a friend’s wedding. He promptly left his job and caught a ferry to Bilbao, cycled up and over the Pyrenees and rode across France towards Cagliari. His journey included 3 ferries, 3 French gorges, and 3 nights sleeping inside in over 2 months. The route was largely unplanned, but Jack arrived in time for the wedding, albeit wearing a shirt bought in a local supermarket. He tells his story for the first time.
Jack’s talk will start around 7.30 pm

Talk 2:
In 2019 Tim Wye cycled 4,500 miles from San Francisco, California to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Tim has a very personal interest in WW2 and his journey was planned to take him past two ships and a U-boat commemorating the Battle of the Atlantic. He met numerous kind spirited folks en route and in the shadow of Donald Trump’s presidency had some interesting discussions about the climate emergency. He cycled through snow, floods and into hurricane Dorian and was so moved by his journey he vowed to do more around sustainability on his return.
Tim’s talk will start around 8.15 pm

Doors open 6.30 pm and music will start promtly at 7.00 pm
