Ale & Arty Charity Festival at St Peter’s, Henleaze: Saturday 20th October

On Saturday 20th October there will be an ‘Ale and Arty’ Festival at St Peter’s Church in Henleaze.

Within walking distance from Bishopston, the event will bring people together from across north west Bristol to enjoy art and ale together.

Entrance is free – and other drinks will be available, including soft drinks and prosecco!

All money raised after expenses will go to Bristol’s Julian Trust Night Shelter and St Peter’s Outreach good causes – including Henleaze Hospitality (supporting Syrian refugee families settling in NW Bristol) and an Occupational Therapist working in Tanzania.

Starting at 12 noon, there will be a wonderful range of craft and art stalls to find special birthday and Christmas presents. You can have lunch in the Hall area and, among the ‘active art’ stalls, look out for Hat Making, a Photo Booth and, for children, there’ll be face painting, a nail bar and more!

Raffle tickets sold during the afternoon will be drawn and great prizes distributed around 5pm. A Scalextric circuit will once more be available for those with competitive spirits!

Lunches will be available from 12pm and Hot Dogs and Bar Snacks from around 4pm onwards.

At 7pm the church area turns into a live music venue. The Watermelon Jam Jazz band will do two sets and then, at 9pm, famed Bristol R&B band The Deltics will take to the stage to rock St Peter’s in a way it has never been rocked before! Bars will close at 10.30pm.

You can find St Peter’s Church on The Drive, Henleaze, BS9 4LD.
