BS9 Arts Trail celebrates five years

April 29 2018

The BS9 Arts Trail celebrates its fifth anniversary on the weekend of 9 and 10 June - it’s one postcode, with so much to see!

From 11am to 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday, 14 venues will be open and ready to welcome you in to browse the huge range of artwork on display. All of the work is made by the 76 artists taking part in the Trail and includes: painting, print, textiles, jewellery, ceramics, photography, and much more.

Artists love to discuss their work, so feel free to ask them about how it’s made. There is no pressure to buy, but prices are often lower when you purchase directly from the artist.

Entry to all venues is free and adults and children are very welcome. A trail map and information on disabled access can be found at The printed version of the map can be found at cafes, shops and libraries across the city in the run up to the trail. 

There is a great mix of interesting venues to visit, including eight artists’ homes, two primary schools (Elmlea and Westbury on Trym), a scout hut, the Stoke Bishop Village Hall, Oatley House Main Hall, St Monica Trust and the University of Bristol Botanic Garden. Show your trail map at the Welcome Lodge at the Botanic Garden and you can enjoy free entry to the whole garden. On Saturday 9, come and enjoy the drop in Miss Rochie Makes workshop at Elmlea Junior School. Many venues offer refreshments so you can enjoy a summer walk around BS9 looking at art and beautiful scenery with opportunities to sample delicious food and drinks along the way.
