Make a day of it

Bristol is a hotbed of creativity with a jam-packed programme of cultural activities across the city; this weekend is no exception.


Start your day with brunch at the famous Yurt Lush at Temple Meads station. Sit outside if the weather is good or relax inside, warmed by their wood burner if it's cold. With the motto Eat, Drink, Bristol, Fashion these guys know what they are doing whether you want Shakshuka, Welsh rarebit or a Full English. 



After a short walk through the city to the harbourside, you will reach Arnolfini. Our current exhibition Grayson Perry: The Most Popular Art Exhibition Ever! opens at 11 am and is spread across all three of floors of the gallery. 



On the second floor, we invite you to join us and Imagine New Rules for a contemporary arts centre You can leave your own contribution in our reading room at the end of the exhibition or join the conversation online #newrules. 



Once you have finished looking around the exhibition why not check out our independent bookshop which stocks an excellent selection of local and international titles and of course lots of Grayson Perry merchandise. Or pop into our Cafe bar which is now managed by Bristol Beer Factory providing delicious tea, coffee and a selection of local beers. 


Located just next door to Arnolfini is The  Architecture Centre, the Garth England exhibition is in its closing weekend and is a must see. Then hop on a Bristol Ferry to cross over to Spike Island. Whilst on the Ferry take note of their programme of events for Black History Month throughout October including an event with Dr Edson Burton called Rum, Bananas and Cocao

Once off the ferry, it's just a short walk to Spike Island to catch their most recent exhibition by South Korean artist Kim Yong-Ik. 



If you still haven't had your cultural fix yet, head to Bristol Museum & Art Gallery for their newly opened Radical Clay exhibition

However, if you need to top up your fuel reserves go to Cargo in Wapping Wharf for some food. Although there is a lot of great places Roots' efforts to put sustainable vegetarian food at the heart of the business ticks a lot of boxes. 


After an action-packed day of Bristol delights if you still have energy then Don't Tell Your Mother will be throwing a fun fuelled LGBTQ+Friends party, providing solid bangers until dawn at the Phoenix.
