For anyone interested in the August 2014 Bristol Balloon Fiesta meet organised by Nigel Thomas on the MFP site, this is an update of the latest posts there. The site shuts down on the 12-07-2014, so I'll update this thread until then.<br />

B & B's within walking distance of Ashton Court are cashing in on the event and asking around £250 for 2 nights (without breakfast).
