Now in its third year, ‘Ale and Arty’ brings people together from across north west Bristol to enjoy art and ale together and give everyone a fresh experience of St Peter’s. Entrance is free – and other drinks will be available, including soft drinks and prosecco! All the money raised after expenses will go to Bristol’s Julian Trust Night Shelter and St Peter’s Outreach good causes – including Henleaze Hospitality (supporting Syrian refugee families settling in NW Bristol) and an Occupational Therapist working in Tanzania.
12.00pm, browse the wonderful range of craft and art stalls supplied by the
artists’ co-operative We Make Bristol to find special birthday and Christmas
presents. Have lunch in the Hall area and, among the ‘active art’ stalls, look
out for Hat Making, a Photo Booth and, for children, Face Painting, a Nail Bar
and all sorts of different art activities.
Raffle tickets sold during the afternoon will be drawn and great prizes distributed around 5.00pm.
A Scalextric circuit will once more be available for those with competitive spirits!
Lunches will be available from 12.00pm and Hot Dogs and Bar Snacks from around 4.00pm onwards.
At 7.00pm the church area turns into our live music venue. The Watermelon Jam Jazz band will do two sets and then, at 9.00pm, famed Bristol R&B band The Deltics will take to the stage to rock St Peter’s in a way it has never been rocked before! 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!
