Front Room Arts Trail, Totterdown

Thanks to all who came and supported the trail this year!

Welcome to Front Room Arts Trail Totterdown, Bristol. We are the oldest art trail in Bristol, where each year around 200 professional and amateur artists working in a wide variety of mediums display and sell their artwork to members of the public.

We would be grateful if visitors could leave their cars at home as you may be aware that Totterdown is a very congested area!

This year we hope to attract 200 local artists across 90 different venues, with thousands of visitors coming from across the city and beyond. It’s a fantastic opportunity for local artists to display their work to the public, and it’s also a great opportunity for the public to visit, view, discuss and buy original works of arts and crafts directly from the artist.

Arts trail 2017

This year, the dainty and precipitous streets of Totterdown will fleetingly become home to the delightfully raucous Totterdown Arts Trail. Now in its 17th year, Bristol’s longest-running Arts Trail plans to celebrate the boundless talent of the many creative folk who inhabit this lovely quarter of Bristol. Artists participating will open up their homes and studios to curious visitors who will gain a glimpse into the world of art.

If you are a local purveyor of fine food, a pub, bar etc or if you have a venue you make available to the Arts Trail we would love to hear from you.
