New community festival for 2008!
A brand new festival is being organised for 2008 by volunteers who feel it’s what the community needs, especially in light of the unfortunate demise of the Bristol Community Festival (at Ashton Court).
Built from the ground up, Bristol Festival aims to involve YOU, the general public at every opportunity to ensure the people of Bristol get the community festival they want celebrating the region’s music, performing arts and local culture.
We are currently inviting everyone to get involved and tell us what you want in a festival. Take ownership, make suggestions and make a difference by joining in the discussions on the online forum:
Where would you like it to be? What music would you like to hear? What would you like to see? How much corporate sponsorship would you like to see? What size would you like it? What would you like it to be called? It’s your festival – get involved!
See the official website at www.thebristolfestival.org for more information or to get in touch! We always need more volunteers to help out!
Please spread the word… its about time we combat the apathy of today’s culture. Have your say, support the arts, get involved in your festival! Lets keep this party alive people!
We’re having regular fundraisers, every Wednesday night at Joe Publics, featuring a mixture of local bands and performers, DJs, open mic, drinks promos, fun and frolics!
This week we have a Christmas Fair and Charity Auction, Sat Nov 24th at the beautiful grade 2 listed building Armada House, Telephone Avenue (just off Baldwin Street) so come along and get into the festive spirit whilst supporting your community festival for 2008. (free entry 10-6)
Focusing on local traders, small and independent businesses and local arts, crafts and food, it will be a really enjoyable day out with mulled wine, mince pies, live music, holistic therapies, luxury raffles, fantastic auctions (many gifts such as spa days, holistic therapies, days out, works of art and sculpture) and a wide range of stalls all from south west based companies with everything you need for Christmas, and a Rodeo Rudolph ride outside!
