The first time i went to the Thekla i had gone out for a quiet pint with a friend and somehow been put on a coach to Bristol with him and his girlfriend .When i got there i wasn't expecting much but i was pleasantly surprised...
The Thekla is a boat , a big boat but a boat all the same , it has two levels one under the water line where the dancefloor and the dj are and one well above the waterline for people to chill out in and it is easy , from up the top you can look out across the water to the other side of the docks and surprisingly for Bristol it is a good view.
The Thekla is a nice club and although it doesn't attract as many big name dj's as nearby 'Creation' you do get a few decent dj's there , for example when i last went there i saw Hybrid play . Plus its a boat!!
Its easy to find as it is the only boat on the docks in Bristol pumping out loud music , and easy to get too as it is only a short walk from the centre . Overall i would say that The Thekla is one of the best clubs in Bristol and definitely the most original .

War Although the wars of the later 19th century, such as the American Civil War and the Franco-Prussian War, offered insights into what warfare would become as the industrial age developed, nothing could prepare anyone for the global conflict that became the First World War. Here was a lethal combination of warring nations, whose troops were armed with the most sophisticated weapons that technology could devise, each with the means of mass production to manufacture and deliver them. For the first time it was possible to wage war on a grand scale on land, in the air and beneath and upon the oceans. This was a war where millions of men took part in battle and, in consequence, stripped the production and support services workforces from their home countries. Women, already impatient for political reform, stepped forward to make a vital contribution to the war effort and in so doing changed their status in western society forever. There were many volunteer organisations who were relied upon to support the fighting troops, including the Scottish Women's Hospitals, the F.A.N.Ys, the Y.M.C.A and those who are the subject of this book-the V.A.Ds-the Voluntary Aid Detachments. Three quarters of V.A.Ds were women and girls and they became ambulance drivers, mechanics, cooks, clerks and learned trades which were normally the province of men. But it is in their role as nurses during the conflict for which they are especially remembered. The V.A.Ds included both trained and untrained nurses who worked principally under the direction of the Red Cross and the Order of St. John. This special Leonaur book about the V.A.Ds, published to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, contains three essential and riveting first-hand acounts by those who served, and provides invaluable insights into the developing role of women during those years of crisis.
