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.

The best way to delve into the Front Room world is to download our app (Apple, Google Play) or to pick up a paper map from the Oxford or the Banana Boat, then simply follow your feet.
Most venues are open 10am to 6pm, Saturday and Sunday.
In addition, some are open for a Friday night preview from 7pm to 9pm. Please check on individual venues for details.
