Bristol Mandarin Chinese Meetup

This is a group for anyone who is learning Mandarin Chinese or who is a native speaker. Meetups are usually every couple of weeks, alternating a Chinese meal with a social. The socials will mostly be Mandarin only for the first hour to help us get some good practice in! All abilities are welcome.

FAQs:

Q: How good does my Chinese need to be for the Mandarin only sessions?

A: You need to be able to have a conversation in Chinese. It doesn't matter if you aren't very fluent - if you are happy to mostly listen and contribute where you can, that's fine. We do not speak any English unless very necessary!

Q: Can I still turn up even if I don't RSVP?

A: Please RSVP to events as I always book tables. However, there is more flexibility at the social events so we would still like to see you if you can make it last minute! I always have my phone with me with the meetup app on it, so if you can let me know, please do.

Q: I don't speak Mandarin, can I come along and learn?

A: Strictly, not really. This group is a social group and we do not 'teach' anyone. If you are studying independently and are a beginner, please do come along and see what you can learn from being in a Mandarin speaking environment, but do not expect anyone to be able to give you a lesson!

Q: I haven't been to a meetup before, what should I expect?

A: Our Mandarin meetups are very relaxed and informal. There are always new people who might be a bit nervous too, so don't worry! Come along and try it out, and meet some new friends.

Q: I can't make it in time for the meal, can I join later?

A: It depends on where we go, but we usually stay in the restaurant all evening. Sometimes it will be ok to join for a drink afterwards, but it depends on the restaurant, so please ask me if you want to join a bit late.

Q: How do I find you at the bar/restaurant?

A: There will always be a meetup sign on the table. Take a look at the organiser's picture so you can recognise me!

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered Exercise Group

Our Exercise Group is for our LGBT+ Community in Bristol, our family and friends can come too. We use our own body weight to Circuit Train for an hour. This means we do a series of Squats, Lunges, Push and Sit-ups, which works our upper and lower body for maximum weight loss and strength training.

As we're a community group, there's the option to socialise with a drink afterward. We're a very friendly and welcoming group and range from different fitness levels.

The session is only £3.50 to cover studio hire and the instructor's fee. Therefore, we appeal to both new and experience fitness enthusiast, where paying an extra £3.50 isn't too much beyond an existing gym membership.

A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove)

A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove)
  • 2015
  • Sweden
  • 116 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Hannes Holm
  • Cast: Rolf Lassgård, Bahar Pars, Zozan Akgün, Tobias Almborg

Ove ( Lassgård) is an ageing, widowed grump who’s the self-appointed prefect of a small community; his attempts at suicide are continually frustrated by his new neighbours, mouthy Iranian immigrant Parvaneh (Pars) and her family. Shamelessly feelgood, with a welcome streak of black comedy, it’s predictable but heartwarming.

My Cousin Rachel

My Cousin Rachel
  • 2017
  • UK/US
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Roger Michell
  • Cast: Sam Claflin, Rachel Weisz, Holliday Grainger

A young Englishman plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms. Weisz is a fine choice for the eponymous enigma, while Claflin is superb as her heedless admirer Philip but the film feels desperately abbreviated.

The Seasons In Quincy: Four Portraits Of John Berger

The Seasons In Quincy: Four Portraits Of John Berger
  • 2016
  • 93 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Bartek Dziadosz, Colin MacCabe, Christopher Roth, Tilda Swinton
  • Cast: John Berger, Tilda Swinton,

Wonderful documentary comprising four essay-films about the writer John Berger, in which Swinton and fellow film-makers hang out with him and discuss what it calls his ‘radical, democratic humanism’. Each film is stand-alone but they form a lovely mosaic, being not just about Berger but also about how others respond to him.

  • 2017

  • 122 min

  • Written by: Bruno Dumont
  • Cast: Fabrice Luchini, Juliette Binoche, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi

Portly police chief Machin (Després) and his sidekick Malfoy (Rigaux) investigate disappearing holidaymakers in Slack Bay; could cannibalism be involved? Madcap murder mystery with a stellar cast; the satire may be a touch obvious and the shtick becomes repetitive, but it’s speckled with hilarity.

Their Finest

Their Finest
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 117 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Lone Scherfig
  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy

London, 1940: fledgling screenwriter Catrin Cole (Arterton) joins the Ministry of Information’s Film Division and starts working on a propaganda movie. Scherfig wraps the war in a cosy cloak of nostalgia in a way that dulls moments of high anxiety, and despite a fine ensemble it’s all too muffled and mild-mannered.
