Description

Mayor Marvin Rees
Wed 17 October 2018, 18:30-19:45
Great Hall, Wills Memorial Building
Free, but booking required

In his 2017 State of the City Address, Mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees put forward his delivery plan to implement his vision for Bristol. He now looks to the future, setting out how his administration is delivering against key pledges. Financial challenges remain, but the Mayor continues to look at the positive plans for Bristol, detailing transport innovation, environmental measures, infrastructural regeneration, how his administration is tackling the housing crisis, future plans for children’s services, and adult social care – the measures being undertaken to make Bristol a city in which nobody is left behind. He will cover progress on collaborative long term projects such as Bristol’s One City Approach and City Funds Board. In the week that the Mayor hosts the Global Parliament of Mayors Summit in Bristol, he will also address how mayors worldwide can meet the challenges that face all cities in the absence of national government coordination. He will be joined by the City Poet, who will perform a new poem at the event, as well as partners from across the city.

Events start punctually and, out of consideration to other audience members and speakers, our policy is not to admit latecomers. Please make sure to arrive before the advertised start time to take your seat/s.

We have restricted the number of tickets that can be booked to one per transaction. This has been introduced in an effort to stop people automatically booking multiple tickets without confirming if they have guests to go with them. We hope this will help to limit the number of 'no shows' at the events, which currently run at around 35% of bookings. If you need more than one ticket, you can click on the booking link again. The little extra effort involved will hopefully put off those who don’t really need more than one, but not those who do.

The Festival of Ideas endeavours to hold its events in venues that are accessible to all. The Great Hall in the Wills Memorial Building has a loop system and is accessible to wheelchair users. For more information about accessing the venue, check here. If you have specific access concerns, please do contact us with any questions.

We sometimes film and photograph Festival of Ideas events. Please let us know if you do not wish to be filmed or photographed.
