  • Stokes Croft & Montpelier:
    Street Photography with Colin Moody

    Friday 1st February, 7.30pm (doors open 7pm)


    Local photographer Colin Moody takes us on a journey through Montpelier and Stokes Croft.

    No place sums up the Bristol attitude of artistic creation and rebellion as Stokes Croft and Montpelier. With its world-renowned street art, thriving local scene and diverse cultural history, Stokes Croft has for decades been resisting the inevitable creep of corporate interests, but more importantly offers up an alternative. Colin’s photographs take you under the skin of the people, cultures, and place in this unique area of the city, where lives intersect and a new world is being created every day.

    Tickets £3 online or from the library

  • The making of Victorian Bristol – Talk by Peter Malpass

    Thursday 21st March, 7.30pm (doors open 7pm)

    Peter lives locally and is Emeritus Professor of Housing and Urban Studies at UWE. This publication is the product of seven years of research looking at Bristol’s development during the Victorian period.

    How was our city transformed by a growing population, industrial change, technological innovation and urban expansion? How did the population respond to the opportunities and challenges afforded by economic growth and world trade? And who had the power to decide what solutions should be adopted?

    You will also hear about some more recent research on the development of our local area.

    Do you recognise the building above? Come along and see if you are right.

    Cash bar with snacks and soft drinks.

    Tickets £3 online or from the library
