Bristol Fiesta - Virtual NightGlow 2020
Although Covid-19 caused the cancellation of the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta, we were all determined to do something special and have worked with BBC and many volunteer individuals and companies to create a NightGlow to remember.
Our unbranded blue balloon was used to suspend Aerial Performer, Lyn, high up in the air for her performance
The BBC production was recorded 2 days earlier and was broadcast on Saturday August 8, when there should have been a NightGlow at Ashton Court.
You can see the NightGlow on BBC iPlayer by clicking the button below.
