Bishopston Library

New Opportunity – A series of talented events

The Friends of Bishopston Library are looking for young people, aged 18-23, brimming with ideas to help plan and promote a series of workshops this Autumn.

We are assembling a group that will shape a workshop series in Bishopston Library for other young people. You will curate the themes and format of the workshops as part of a team of project Ambassadors. The workshop series – A Series of Talented Events – aims to welcome more young people into the Library.

Your curiosity, passion and ideas will influence conversations about what the Library can offer, beyond books and a study space, for other 18-23 year olds.

If you’re interested in joining the Ambassador team, please tell us a bit about yourself using this short form by 9:00am on Monday 25 October.

If you have any questions, email Alison C (Project Coordinator) via

EVENTS CANCELLED – Update 17.3.20
In keeping with current guidance to avoid social events and maintain a distance from other people, we are cancelling our forthcoming events. We are doing this in the best interests of our audiences and volunteers, to keep people as well as possible and reduce the spread of coronavirus. We will try and keep you informed about the library and what you can do online, so do check out our website and Facebook page.
All online ticket purchases have been refunded. For cash sales at the library please ask at the library for a full refund (at the time of writing libraries have not  announced any changes to opening hours but this may well happen).
