Bristol Tuppenny Starvers

Where: Formerly at Bristol, Avon at Church of St-Michael-on-the-Mount Without but now held privately at the school
When: Formerly Easter Tuesday


Tuppenny starvers are large fruit buns which were distributed every Easter Tuesday at the church of St-Michael-on-the-Mount Without in Bristol. It’s a charity dole dating back three hundred years but as the church is no longer in use the custom has evolved into the Bun Festival, which is  held at the local school. Although  not open to the general public, the tradition still continues!
