Redfest will return in August, a two-day celebration of everything that’s great about East Bristol. This year though, there’s a twist.
Instead of taking place in St George Park, as has been the case in previous years, Redfest 2017 will be a weekend-long multi-venue festival on and around Church Road.
The festival will feature local venues, community organisations, businesses, traders and artists of all disciplines from Redfield and the surrounding areas. A curated trail will challenge people to explore their neighbourhood and discover venues they may not have known before.
The aim of the festival, which is sponsored by Cafe Grounded and The Old Stillage, is to highlight Church Road and the surrounding area in its best possible light, introduce people to everything that’s great about our area and increase community cohesion and pride.
To see what’s happening and which venues are involved, check out the festival’s map page for more details.
Redfest is run by volunteers and costs tens of thousands of pounds to stage. Organisers are keen to keep it a free event so have asked for the Bristol public’s help either through volunteering or donations.
Local shops and cafes are encouraged to collect donations while you can also give a contribution via the festival’s Paypal page.
