The Totterdown Arts Trail is returning for 2021

20th & 21st November 2021

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

We’re so excited to be returning in 2021
for a weekend filled with fun, creativity and
exploring the streets of Totterdown.

For obvious reasons the trail didn’t go ahead last year,
but we’re pretty sure that we can do something this year,
even if it would be a bit different.

But we need the help of our community to understand
how we can make it safe and enjoyable for everyone.

So we’re asking for some feedback and general interest
from our all our lovely Totterdown neighbours.

Contact hello@totterdownartstrail.org with any questions
Full sign-up form goes live on 30th September

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.
