although it may not seem like much, apparently the city i live in (bristol) has been home to many famous faces. i’ve been told this over and over by various school projects attempting to show how wonderful our city is, and to be honest it is actually a pretty nice place to live in, despite the scarier parts of the city and my heavy sarcasm ;P
so here’s a list of some of the things that bristol is famous for…apologies if you’ve never heard of any of them ;3…
☆ aardman animations (wallace and gromit, anyone?) was founded here! nick park and co. are from bristol (but they never replied to the letter i sent them when i was 8 😦 )
☆ banksy the graffiti artist is rumoured to have attended bristol grammar, a school which some of my friends go to now :0
☆ a load of british comedians came from bristol, russell howard and bill bailey being two of them
☆ surprisingly, the suave cary grant is from bristol!
has your city produced any claims to fame? i would love to know them!
