Winter Programme 2021/22

Winter has often been described as bleak.
With that in mind, a group of Horfield residents and local organisations (with the help of some funds from Bristol City Council) have come together to host a programme of events and activities to blow away the Winter blues and boost community spirit!
For some events, places must be booked in advance, and for others, you can just turn up.

Some activities are just for residents of Horfield Ward, and others are open to all. Please check the details before turning up, to avoid disappointment!
