Easter Weekend No More Scaffolding Re-launch
After nearly a year the scaffolding will finally be coming down off of The Old Duke next week. To celebrate this event we're having a little 're-launch' of the pub. Basically a few extra bands over the Easter weekend.
Please come and join us.
I'd like to thank CB Construction for all of their hard work over the last year. ParticularlyIslwyn for looking after the scaffolding and all of his help.
I'd also like to thank Dean Arnel and Clifton Decorators Ltd for the fantastic job they did with the painting.

My Home of Music
A brand new documentary series kicks off this September on BBC Radio Bristol. Broadcast every weeknight at 6.15 on BBC Radio Bristol, 'My Home of Music' tells the personal stories of musical homes in the West.
And we have been featured!
Throughout the series, locations will range from The Old Duke, The Glen and The Granary to Russ Conway's childhood home and the Bristol Institute of Modern Music. The programmes will also be telling the story of those less likely musical homes, such as Twerton Park, Milsom Street in Bath and music therapy at St. Peters Hospice.
See this 'My Home of Music' video of The Old Duke in Bristol.
BBC Radio Bristol invites people to visit the Colston Hall throughout the series and record their message.Visitors will also be able to listen to some of the pieces on the BBC Radio Bristol Theatre Jukebox in the Glass Room.
Listeners can also tweet @myhomeofmusic or email email@example.com.
