Welcome to the Totterdown Arts Trail

Join us for the Totterdown Arts Trail, Bristol’s longest running arts trail, now in its 23rd year! This free event is a unique opportunity to explore the vibrant arts scene in Totterdown, Bristol.

For one weekend in November, artists, makers, and creatives open up their homes and studios to showcase their work. Expect to see everything from paintings and sculptures to photography, textiles, and ceramics. Many artists will also be selling their work, so it’s a great chance to pick up some unique Christmas gifts.

Here are just a few of the things you can expect at the Totterdown Arts Trail:

  • Pop-up exhibitions in homes, studios, and galleries
  • Mulled wine and cider
  • Creative activities for the family
  • Live performances
  • Art for sale
