  • A fantastic show about the 250th anniversary of the circus. Containing 50 years of photography by Peter Lavery. #circus50
  • Apparently, this is Bristol's oldest gallery and certainly one of its most beautiful. An excellent space and I thoroughly enjoyed the show I saw there.
  • A great place to see all types of art and they frequently have lots of excellent exhibitions.
  • Booked a "day" drawing course here. It was quite nice- the class was small, the tools provided, and the tutor very nice and respectful, allowing us time to try out his suggestions and to reflect on our attempts. It was very enjoyable to see the other people's work and to draw them. One thing that would prevent me from going again is the cost- for the price tag, I was expecting a bit more tuition above quite generic recommendations.
  • Great café. Art is free for Bristol students.
