South Bristol Arts Trail runs for two days this weekend

Posted on: 06 Sep 2022

The free, family-friendly celebration of artistic creativity in the South Bristol community will take place on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 September.


Happening for the first time in four years, the trail will take place in venues across Southville, Bedminster and Ashton.


The participating venues include Tobacco Factory, Southville Centre, Windmill Hill City Farm as well as The Malago among others with 120 artists showcased across the two days.


More information, including a map of the featured venues, can be found on the South Bristol Arts Trail website.



The South Bristol Arts Trail offers visitors the opportunity to explore the unique artistic nature of the BS3 community with 40 venues showcasing well over 100 creatives. As well as exhibiting in shops, cafes and community spaces, these artists will be opening up their homes and studio spaces to the public.


Not only is there a diverse programme of artists to explore but there is also an eventful workshop lineup. The schedule includes watercolour painting with Jodie of Sunshine for Breakfast and Clay Play at Trylla along with a whole heap of other activities.


All these workshops and performances are free to attend and will be run on a drop-in basis so why not head down to try out a new craft and explore your creative side? The full programme can be found on the arts trail website.

South Bristol Arts Trail caters for a variety of ages and will also be bringing music to the streets of BS3 with Saturday afternoon performances from local group CrumScrum as well as a Sunday morning performance from The Bristol Harpist.


On the Saturday - between 10:00 and 16:00 - the trail’s biggest host venue, Tobacco Factory, will be holding an art market alongside the event.


Some of the featured stalls include locally photographed prints and greeting cards, ceramic wildlife sculptures, sustainable cross stitch kits, limited edition screen prints and origami decorations to name but a few.
