I know this isn’t fashion related, but I’m all for supporting local talent and just have to share this with you. If you haven’t sorted your Christmas presents or cards yet (let’s be honest, who has!?) then you need to get yourself down to Cabot Circus tonight.
This year, the run up to Christmas has seen over 100 local artists come together as part of ‘Pop-Up Bristol’ - a new initiative from Made in Bristol that has showcased a diverse range of independent galleries and creative talent on the high street for the first time, adding a new dimension to Christmas shopping at Cabot Circus this year. The pop-ups offer the opportunity to purchase quality gifts and one-off pieces by up-and-coming artists.
Tonight, Pop-Up Bristol will be hosting a party to celebrate the one-month countdown to Christmas at 6pm across their three temporary festive galleries at Cabot Circus - Drawn in Bristol, Pop-Upfest and Smithson Gallery & Gifts.
The event will offer guests a fantastic opportunity to see and purchase all the brilliant artworks the shops have on offer and will also feature live drawing and music. There will also be a chance to meet all of the diverse and talented artists involved in the project along with some exciting special guests.
I can’t think of a better way to shop for my Christmas gifts this year...see you there!
