Floating Harbour has been a long-term Media Partner with TEDxBristol and we are delighted to support the movement which has always offered us inspirational, informative and exciting experiences.

We support all of the TEDxBristol ‘pillars’ but are particularly engaged with developing ‘Fresh Talent’. Bath Spa students have taken on roles within our team to help film the event. Students are on cameras, in the edit and gain valuable industry experience. We need them too. TEDxBristol is a real job for volunteers and you have to get the job done with professionalism and limited resources. So the experience is an authentic one and the result is an incredible journey for everyone.

Floating Harbour is a production company awash with creativity, vast experience and all the latest toys. We are a small company with big ears, big experience, big ideas. Oh…and a studio and production offices on a very big boat in the heart of Bristol.
