Now in its fourth year, the Ale and Arty Charity Festival on Saturday 12th October offers a unique opportunity to bring people together from across North West Bristol to enjoy a combination of art stalls, children’s activities, teas, cakes and BBQ in the afternoon, live music in the evening and a great range of craft ale, cider, prosecco, wine, and soft drinks throughout the day. Entrance is free.
Starting at 2.00pm, browse the wonderful range of craft and art stalls supplied by Bristol artists’ co-operative We Make Bristol to find special birthday and Christmas presents. Settle children into craft activities and enjoy tea and cake in the Hall and, from around 4.00pm, Hot Dogs with all the trimmings. Great raffle prizes will be available for the first Prize Draw at 5.00pm.
Once the art stalls have disappeared, St Peter’s becomes what, last year, was described as ‘the most atmospheric pub in Bristol’! The bars remain open and at 7.00pm the Watermelon Jam jazz band will start the first of its two excellent ‘lounge jazz’ sets. The second Raffle Draw will be held between acts. At 9.00pm famed Bristol R&B band The Deltics take the stage to rock St Peter’s in a way it hasn’t been rocked…since they performed here last year! The bars will close at 10.30pm - and everything will be packed away and made ready for the first Sunday service at 8.00am the next day!
