Explore & Enjoy the B9 Art Trail through Parklands to beautiful Green Spaces

We will meet out side the village hall to decide where we go as we can go in small groups via cycle or Walking preferred to get to most of the destinations in the trail as the tour takes in each venue & allows for exploration of the whole area on the various Greenbelt & parkland & wildlife areas. 

We will first then move start in WoT following the Art Trail from the middle down through Canford Park in Stoke Bishop to sea walls in Durdham Down through Henleaze into Golden Hill, Wellington Hill into Southmead Rd through to Westbury Wild Park and through Blaise Castle Estate over Henbury Golf Course back to Westbury On Trym to finish.

Although there is also good bus links with the 2,59,40,40A & 41 buses or can car share for those of us unable to Walk the whole route. The free art trail features over 74 local artists where you can meet them, view their work and learn about the processes involved in producing the artworks that you see. The work on display can be viewed and enjoyed but can be bought directly from the artists at very affordable prices as no commission is charged.

★Please bring cash or cheques if you hope to purchase any of their artworks as most of the artists can't take card payments.

By holding the at event in May many of the local beautiful green spaces in BS9 including the Downs, Golden Hill, Westbury Wildlife Park, Blaise Estate and so we will enjoy a lovely walk linking all these spaces in many venues to see & perhaps buy? the art on display. 

 † There will be refreshments & food available at many of the venues so we can stop to think to reflect on which pieces we like & rest whilst we enjoy our Walk. 

Although due the possible large numbers of attending this event I have restricted the numbers because several venues may not be able to host large groups. I recommend that we respect  the hosts, as we may have to split into smaller groups in private houses & smaller venues. 

Check out:: www.bs9arts.co.uk for more information including clickable links about all of the local artists and what kind of art materials & variety of different kinds of works they produce. 

Check out the map of the 20 local venues in individual artists homes and Group studios, to Village halls and larger community venues.

We can meet up afterwards the art trail for catch up together for drinks & perhaps pub food.

We look forward to seeing you there to enjoy great art work, various different wildlife & natural habitats whilst on the walk between each venues and the friendly banter or chats between our Meetup Community. 

The Bristol Hiking Group will be joining us.

Cheers Katrina and Stuart.

    Blimey! This art route brings us dangerously close to the Toby carvery at Henbury. I may weaken----------

      Laurence there is also a Toby Carvery in Whitchurch, might that tempt you to walk south of the river? You don't need a passport!

      Did you get to do the whole route Katrina? There was a lot of good quality art to look at as well as doing a long walk!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
