Bristol Crocodile Appears at The Canteen


Why on earth is there a crocodile at the Canteen?

The Crocodile is at the Canteen as part of Hamilton House residents exhibition & also the open studios weekend this weekend. Katcha’s studio is in Hamilton house. It’s a little humorous commentary about our wasteful consumerist society.

Why a crocodile? Katcha transforms discarded material into beautiful and useful products, and has found her niche in inner tubes and tyres. Although her main work is in fashion accessories, she couldn’t resist making life-size crocodiles from car tyres due to the tread – it’s perfect crocodile skin.

There’s a whole family of them that go to festivals every summer and are much loved by children and adults – kids use them as climbing frames and even launch themselves off their jaws!

The designer behind the brand is Katcha Bilek, to find out a little bit more about her visit her website or follow her on Twitter.

“Where will we go for foam parties now?”

“How will I find more freshers to creep on?”

“Is there another club where they sell Jagerbombs?” – (yes, every club does, don’t worry about it).

Syndicate’s regulars have been weeping:


Others were quick to not offer their sympathies:

Whether you love it it or hate, you’ve probably been there at least once. For those who want one last Syndicate blow out, their final night will be on August 22nd. Have a look at the Facebook event for more details.

If Bristol’s Matty Pearce Quotes Were Motivational Posters


Jeremy Kyle star will provide all the motivation you will ever need.

Bristol’s Matty Pearce has managed to star on Jeremy Kyle a phenomenal 4 times, and has since been banned from returning from J.K himself, who said on his last appearance: “Don’t come back here again. Your relationship is a joke. I’ve got better things to do.” 

If you’ve managed to miss a Matty Pearce appearance then please educate yourself immediately:

At Best of Bristol we’ve been truly inspired by his words of wisdom and feel the best way Bristol would benefit would be to turn his quotes into 9 motivational posters:
