Schools, gentrification, and Bristol Pride

This week on the show, Alex talks to education reporter Michael Yong about the Bristol Real Schools Guide. Michael explains what it is, how it's put together and how to parents can use the guide most effectively. Michael is passionate about education and does great work to help parents and families across the city with his reporting, so it's great to find out more about his work.

Next up, Tristan Cork joins the show to talk about the future of Bedminster. Tristan talks us through the new developments planned in BS3 and what they could mean for the area. Alex and Tristan also explore the gentrification and how the face of Bristol is changing. Tristan is very much a community-driven reporter so his take on this topic is really quite fascinating.

Finally on the show, we are talking about another huge event taking place this weekend - it's Bristol Pride! A huge event in the city to celebrate the LGBTQ community in Bristol. It's an amazing event and really shows just how inclusive Bristol is. Content Editor Sophie Prideaux and Reporter Grace Earl join the show to discuss the highlights, what to expect and why Pride is such a great celebration for the city!
