Getting really excited now as things are speeding up in preparation for the Southbank Bristol Arts Trail 2009. On the 9th and 10th May, 140 artists are going to be showing their stuff at over 50 venues in Bedminster, Southville and Ashton, with many artists opening their homes to the public. Entry to all venues is free, so it’s good entertainment during the current economic downturn. As well as the art, most of which you can buy, there will be music, craft fairs, a market, graffiti demonstrations, workshops for adults and kids, and plenty of places where you can get good food and drink. All in all a great way to spend an inexpensive weekend, look at good art, meet your friends and pick up a bargain. See you there!
