Offsite - Barton Hill Festival

Sunday 29 October 2017, 11:00 to 17:00


This Autumn, join Barton Hill residents for a free fun community arts festival at Barton Hill Settlement.

Barton Hill Festival is a day with a difference. Up our street, Travelling Light Theatre Company and Barton Hill Settlement have partnered to create a  free festival made for and with the local community. The programme is already jam-packed with theatre, craft, music, dance, drumming and food from around the world.

Local families can get involved with creative workshops, watch breath-taking performances, enjoy the live music stage curated by BCFM, and find out more about Barton Hill’s hidden history, all whilst enjoying homemade cakes donated by the community. For parents in need of a bit of TLC complimentary therapists from the Wellspring will be on hand to de-stress tired minds and local charity Dhek Bhal will be serving a selection of South Asian delights for lunch. Young people with additional needs can experience sensory films in a specially designed inclusive inflatable tent and to finish things off in style, the day will culminate in a spectacular lantern parade through the local area.

Suitable for all ages.


Barton Hill Festival has been made possible thanks to the support of The Big Lottery Fund’s Awards For All scheme and Bristol City Council’s Community Festival and Events Fund. To keep up to date follow us on twitter @hillfestival or find us on Facebook, search ‘Barton Hill Festival’.
