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 with our hot air balloons 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 Routledge, 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.
