Redfest in Bristol

Back in its old location of St George Park (hopefully - they're still raising funds to 100% secure that beautiful spot, so when you've finished reading this click on the link and get donating), Redfest is the perennially popular local community festival which takes place in early August and showcases the talents of local artists and performers.

Always recognised and respected for its unwavering support of burgeoning creative talents of all descriptions, it's an event that positively pulsates with the excitement of eclectic performers covering a gamut of disciplines. Whether its demonstrating a well-honed act or just working on early-stage, in-progress performances, Redfest throbs with a real creative buzz.


A great focal point for artists and performers from the region and further afield to come together and share their talents, you can find out more about Redfest, look at videos and pics of past events, and see how you can get involved here.


Redfest will take place (hopefully) at St George Park and other venues in the BS5 area.
