Love Your Festivals by supporting the Festivals centre for the city

Bristol's leading Festivals & Events have come together for a collaborative project to develop sustainability in the city.

Bristol Festivals, a new not for profit company, has been created to bring together the city’s major festivals and event organisers to work as one and share resources, expertise and information. It will provide a united voice for the many festivals and events that are a major tourism and economic deliverer for Bristol. The initiative involves everyone from the Balloon Fiesta to Brisfest, St Pauls to Pride, Mayfest to Encounters.

This week the Love Your Festivals campaign was launched to ask for financial support to create a Festivals Hub in the city with the aim of creating a vibrant, professional and creative space that will eventually offer:

•    An information centre for the public
•    A one-stop box office for festivals and events
•    Offices for festival organisers
•    A centre for skills sharing, talks, training
•    Meeting rooms
•    Hot-desking facilities

The funds will help with the first phase of renovating a disused building in the city centre which will eventually become the hub.
