Banksy in Bristol – is it worth the wait?

As those local to Bristol will know, the Policy Press offices are very close to Bristol City Museum & Art Gallery where the now famous Banksy exhibition is taking place. When it first opened, we thought we’d be able to pop along in our lunch-hour, but it has turned out to be far more popular than expected, and daily queues of up to three hours form. One staff member walks past the Museum at 7.45am on her way to work and people are often beginning to queue then, a full two hours before the Museum opens!

After several abortive attempts to visit, I finally joined the queue last week and after two hours was at last admitted. Was it worth the wait? I’d say yes – I’m no art critic but Banksy (whoever he is) certainly is a talented artist and I enjoyed the quirky humour of the exhibits. Moreover, anything that encourages people to visit their local Museum (and come from far and wide to do so) has got to be a good thing.

And one more thing – if you’re thinking of visiting the exhibition, come soon, as it finishes at the end of August. You could always pop into the Policy Press offices afterwards and say hello!
