The Thekla Returns to Bristol
After The Thekla left its mooring 8 weeks ago, it has since undergone a complete makeover and has a wonderful new militias paint job of Black, Grey and Red. On the 14th of September 2014 it was towed back through the harbour and was moored up at its usual address (The Grove, East Mud Dock, Bristol BS1 4RB) by midday. I can’t wait to have a look inside and see what they’ve been up to.
Banksy’s famous grim reaper which was painted on the hull to the Thekla, has been removed to maintain the structure of the boat (it will be available to view at The Mshed before Christmas) – A bristol artist, Inkie has added his mark in it’s place.. it looks great!
