Looking good! Lots to see in 2023 

THE North Bristol Art Trail takes place over the last weekend of November, 25th – 26th. 

This popular trail has been taking place in our area for over 20 years. More than 100 local artists, crafters and makers show their original artwork in homes, studios and public spaces so just pop in. There will be everything including: original paintings, prints, ceramics, jewellery, textiles and glassware. 

Artists love this chance to meet people and talk about their creative process so don’t be shy about going up to them, or just have a browse as you would in a public gallery. Many new members are joining the trail this year so there’ll be lots of interesting and different work to see and artists to talk to. 

The trail stretches over Redland, Bishopston, Henleaze, St Andrews, Ashley and Horfield, subdivided into smaller areas on the trail map to make it easier to plan your route. 

You can find the NBA map online or pick up a physical copy in many venues around Bristol including Future Leap and Room 212 on Gloucester Road, Coldharbour Gallery & Waitrose in Westbury Park and at the Royal West of England Academy. 

The art trail is a really fun and relaxed event. It’s a fantastic chance to bump into your friends and neighbours, buy yourself a treat or find reasonably priced original artworks in time for Christmas! 

Some of the artists will hold a preview evening on Friday 24th November and many will offer mulled wine or refreshments during the trail.

Just look for the North Bristol Art Trail signs, sponsored by Elephant Estate Agents, that go up outside each of the venues and check out https://northbristolartists.org.uk for further information
