Front Room Arts Trail 2013

This weekend you have another chance to explore an area of Bristol and see some great art, craft and design on show. From 15th-17th November, the Front Room Arts Trail will be taking place in Totterdown, an area in the south of the city. The Front Room Arts Trail started in 2001, making the oldest arts trail in Bristol, and it regularly attracts around 180 artists across 60 different venues, with thousands of visitors coming from across the city and beyond.

Many local people open up their houses to show their artworks and those of their friends. Local community spaces, such as pubs, churches, cafes, schools and other exhibition areas also get involved. There are lots of activities for children, plus music, street theatre, light shows, and all kinds of things to entertain you during your visit.
