Wow! Gorillas Auction: Baka Beyond
Few can have missed the colourful, life-size Wow! Gorillas sculptures on the streets of Greater Bristol this summer. The 61 fibreglass gorilla statues appeared all over the streets and parks of Bristol for everyone to enjoy in celebration of Bristol Zoo’s 175th birthday year.
Now the gorillas are being sold at a prestigious charitable auction to raise money for Bristol Zoo's gorilla conservation projects and Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity.
The auction is taking place at 7pm at the Victoria Rooms, Clifton, and will include a drinks reception and live music from leading Afro Celt band Baka Beyond. Tickets for the auction are available from www.bristolzoo.org.uk/wow-gorillas or by phoning 0117 9747 300.
Tickets are priced at £10 and spaces are strictly limited.
Sealed bids can be made in advance, and telephone bids will be taken on the night. For further information contact Judy Tucker on firstname.lastname@example.org.
After 22 years of mixing African and Celtic music in equal measures, Baka Beyond has become one of the finest danceable bands around creating the sound of the global village and attaining worldwide recognition.
The energy of their thoroughly uplifting and seamless blend of fiery beats, enchanting harmonies and spectacular dancing defies anybody to sit still.
Each musician brings their own influence and talent to the music creating a unique spectacle and honouring a lesson learned from the Baka people, 'everyone is to be listened to'.
'The party atmosphere was irrepressible' (Evening Standard).
