FOLLOWING a successful inaugural event last year, the BS9 Arts Trail will be returning to the streets of Westbury-on-Trym to showcase the area's creative talents.

The trail takes place in some of Bristol's most iconic green spaces, including the Botanical gardens, with the majority of artists incorporating recycling and other green initiatives to tie in with the city being European Green Capital 2015.

The trail will be held from 9-10 May – the same weekend as the Westbury-on-Trym festival, making the area a hot bed for music, art and crafts across the two days.

Over 70 artists will be showcasing their work across BS9, including paintings, handmade prints, glass work, mosaics, jewellery, textiles, ceramics, sculptures and photography.

Venues will include Venue 35 in Stoke Lane, the theatre hall at St. Monica’s Nursing Home, Westbury-on-Trym Village Hall and numerous private homes and studios.

All venues are free to enter and there will be an opportunity to meet the artists, watch some of them at work, and buy quality art at very affordable prices.

The art trail will run from 11am-5pm. Leaflets showing the trail map and artist details will be available at every venue and also at local libraries, cafes, shops and galleries, as well as online. For more information, visit: www.bs9arts.co.uk.
