The Glos Rd Central Christmas Street Party takes place on Thursday December 1 from 5.30 - 8.00pm. This community celebration marks the start of many businesses Thursday late openings, as well as Sunday opening too, in the lead up to Christmas. 

There will be lots going on for all the family. Golden Hill Community Allotments will have a box of veggies up for grabs with a raffle plus lovely natural wreaths (you can make your own at their wreath making event). There will be lots to eat and drink, from a burgers at Dave Giles, special cakes at Joe’s Bakery and Middle Eastern offerings at Cafe Dream.  Local choirs including Bishop Road Community Choir and Glos Vox will be singing Christmas songs and the Bishopston Bayou band will be keeping us warm with their lively music. Contact Sarah at Room 212 if you'd like your community organisation or charity to join in. 

Mr Gotalot will be coming along to say hello and help Jenny Urquhart announce the winner of her giant painting 'This is Our Bristol'. This lovely bright painting incorporates Bristol landmarks and trademark balloons with lots of well known Bristolians such as James May, Massive Attack, CBBC Andy Day, Mr Gotalot and local figures, including Glos Rd Central traders. 

The canvas will be on display at Room 212 in the lead up to the North Bristol Art Trail and at Jenny's venue during the trail itself. Posters of the painting are available to buy for £20, which also covers entry to the draw. All proceeds go to CCS Adoption, of which Jenny is the patron.
