Thu, 30/04/2020 - Sun, 31/05/2020

In light of the latest announcement from the UK Government and the continuing global public health crisis, all physical events and workshops listed on this website have been cancelled or postponed.  Many of our members have cancelled their events and activities, but they haven't gotten round to deleting their entries and listings on this website so to be sure it's best to check with them for more information about what happens next.

However, most of these events and activites will be rescheduled for later in the year and we hope that you will continue to support artists, makers and creatives in Bristol and beyond during this difficult time.  Most of our members are self-employed so the coming weeks and months are going to be particularly difficult, so where possible please accept rescheduled events rather than request refunds.

In the meantime if you are interested in finding out about fun creative things you can do at home then read this statement from Voluntary Arts about their new #GetCreativeAtHome campaign. 

Also please read this useful advice that is currently published on Visit Bristol:
