Drop-in workshop

16 Narrow Quay

Sat 28 Oct 2017
13:00 - 16:00


Bringing the Bristol Family Arts Festival to a fabulous finish, the finale will be a cacophony of creativity in Arnolfini’s Auditorium.

Join us with Arnolfini, Children’s Scrapstore and Brisotl Doors Open Day for a fun packed day of activity. It’s time to get creative and experiment with ideas, games and ways of making as we take over the auditorium for the traditional Festival Finale extravaganza.

The theme for the afternoon is alter egos and the Architecture Centre will be encouraging families to create their own ‘building’ inspired costumes and hats from scrap, ready to parade along the cat walk at the end of the afternoon. From floating veils to structural hardhats what kind of alter ego are you?!

Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

About Bristol Family Arts Festival 
Bristol Family Arts Festival returns this October for a month long citywide celebration of creativity. Taking place at venues across the city, the programme is packed full with creative activities for all ages. Get inspired with music, theatre, storytelling, drawing, making and much more. With over 50 activities to choose from, there’s sure to be something to spark your curiosity.

Now in its fifth year, the Family Arts Festival continues as the only festival in the city dedicated to families. For old and young, big and little, the festival is for everyone to discover (and rediscover) their inner creative. It’s an opportunity for all of us to visit somewhere new, try something different and spend some time with family. Calling all aunts, uncles, grandparents, best friends, carers, siblings and favourite stuffed toys – join the fun and be inspired.


“I'm proud we have a festival dedicated entirely to families and I welcome the commitment by Bristol Family Arts Festival's organisers to make diversity and inclusion a strong focus of the 2017 event.” Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol
