For us here at Hifi Pig, Sound and Vision Bristol marks the start of the Hifi Show calendar. Even though we are out of the country, this is technically the closest show to Hifi Pig Towers, a mere stones throw over the channel and a nice relaxing ferry ride and pootle up by car from Plymouth. Or it usually is. We should have maybe taken it as a sign of impending doom when the Pig Mobile decided to take a hissy fit the day before departure and have to go to car hospital to await parts.

This year I decided to leave home earlier to make the show in good time.  It was all in vain as it took as long to get from the Clifton Bridge on the A4 to the show venue itself as it did to get from Cornwall to the outskirts of Bristol.  I got within sight of the Marriott Hotel to find the road closed and a huge un-signposted detour through the city centre, with new pedestrianised areas, road works and new one way  streets enabled since my last visit.  It is getting as bad as central London, but without the congestion charge zone.  Hush up Dominic, don’t give the city council any more ideas to make motorist’s lives even more stressful. This was confounded by a piece of a building falling on an unwitting pedestrian and a major road being closed for the whole afternoon and night. More »

So, having had a relatively quick dash along the end of the top corridor at Sound and Vision – The Bristol Show 2017 before we had to go to a meeting we’re back up on the fourth floor and in the thick of it. The floor has filled up nicely with paying punters and there’s a really good buzz going on with plenty of folk making positive noises. More »

This is only my third visit to Sound and Vision – The Bristol Show but it’s fast becoming one of my favourites because of the sheer enthusiasm of pretty much all involved in putting it together and making it work. Signposting is excellent, the show guide is first-rate, the facilities are good, even if the bar can get pretty crowded at times and the people that turn up to support it with their presence are an animated and passionate lot. The show starts on Friday and despite this being a workday for most the show was packed…likewise Saturday and Sunday, though we sadly had a ferry to catch and so left late morning so couldn’t see the show out to the end. Previous years’ gripes have been that the lifts always seem to be occupied or not working properly but I’m pleased to report that this year things seemed to be running a whole lot better. More »
