The Event

Festival favourite Colourful Minds is back! For all those parents of fidgety, wriggly, wide awake kids, Laura has just the book to read – Duncan Beedie’s No Sleep For Bear, which will inspire a fabulously fun and colourful art project (and hopefully a good night’s sleep!).

This is the perfect event for creative pre-schoolers and their grown-ups.

Laura of Colourful Minds runs art and craft workshops for all ages in Bristol.


Ideal for ages

0-5 years

The Bristol Loaf is the cafe in the foyer, which is fully accessible with lowered counters. There is level access from Colston Street or Trenchard street with automatic doors. The accessible toilet facilities are found on all levels and are signposted in the building. All assistance dogs are welcome. Staff are trained to know how to behave around working dogs. Please ask if there’s anything they can do to help. Disabled parking can be found in the NCP Trenchard Street car park. A lay-by for curb-side drop-off is immediately outside Bristol Beacon on Pipe Lane.


Book info

The lovable hero of Waterstones Children’s Book Prize shortlisted The Bear who Stared is getting into more scrapes in this irresistible follow-up title from Duncan Beedie.

Winter is approaching and it’s time for Bear to have a nice long sleep . . . but the more he tries to get to sleep, the more AWAKE he feels. So he decides to copy his forest friends who seem to doze off without any trouble: he sings in the trees like Blackbird, burrows underground like Badger, and even hangs upside down from his cave-roof like a bat. But nothing works – until wise Frog shows him how to relax, and soon the forest is reverberating with his snores!

A perfect bedtime story which will strike a chord with all parents of fidgety, wriggly, wide-awake children!
