This year, both the Hospice and the Balloon Fiesta are celebrating their 40th anniversaries, making for a double celebration of two great Bristol institutions.The Fiesta has become one of Europe's largest annual hot air balloon festivals, attracting over half a million locals and visitors alike. This year, the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta will take place on Thursday 9 to Sunday 12 August 2018, with the famous Night Glows taking place on Thursday and Saturday evenings. 

We hope to see many of you there - do come and visit us in our marquee and say hello!
