Our next Cary Comes Home weekend in Bristol will be 20-22 November 2020 and we’re also working on taking the festival to New York City in July 2020 – the 100-year anniversary of Archie Leach’s emigration to New York – so the Big Apple will feature in our programming and we’ll be retracing Cary Grant’s NY locations and film sets.
POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC
Take a tour of the places which helped to transform Bristol boy Archie Leach into the Hollywood star & style icon Cary Grant. A fun and informative exploration of the city centre locations associated with the Bristol-born film star Cary Grant.
Peek behind the scenes of the theatre where Cary worked back stage as schoolboy Archie Leach. Presented by a knowledgeable guide, the tour takes you around front of house, backstage, and includes history, shows, stars, gossip, ghost stories, and of course Cary Grant.
Sit back and explore the city of Archie’s birth – from the floating harbour that inspired him to travel, to the theatre where it all started – and sample the best that Bristol has to offer along the way, including Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s breathtaking suspension bridge (pictured above) and the SS Great Britain.
