Front Room Arts Trail, Totterdown

Welcome to Bristol’s longest running, and finest art trail.

Hello everyone. Unfortunately, for a number of reasons, our 2020 Art Trail did not take place. We hope to be back in 2021 but……

2021 Art Trail

We very much hope it will return in 2021 but in order to do so we desperately need volunteers to help organise the event

Who Are We?

The Front Room Arts is a free annual arts event in the Totterdown area of South Bristol. Our aim is to highlight our wealth of local talent as we invite you into their studio, back bedroom or front room – wherever the art happens.

The Trail is a unique opportunity to talk to artists about their work, materials and creative process.
Most artists on the Trail exhibit a significant body of work with much being available to purchase.
Our artists cover every conceivable medium, craft and skill, so there’s no shortage of incredible art to explore.

It is a unique chance for visitors to peek behind the scenes, experience this normally hidden world and get to chat to the artists and crafts people about their creative process.
Seeing an artist in action, chatting over a cup tea amongst the paints, clay and saw-dust gives you a real insight into the artistic process.
