A lot of this space is football pitches and shrub land so although it is huge there are two main sites that are used for events. There are also some smaller spaces that could be used (near the suspension is observatory hill). These are possibly better for small theatre productions. Barbeques are not permitted. Bristol City Council want people to use the parks and enable event organisers to make the events happen (whilst taking into account the care of these spaces). Each application for use is accessed on its own merit to determine cost and viability (how the community would benefit, the potential damage to the space etc). Use of this space is by application to Arilda Tymko: [email protected] Parks Events, Amelia Court, Pipe Lane, Bristol, BS99 1ZG, Tel:0117 922 3538, Fax: 0117 922 3858, e-mail: [email protected] This space has been used for: small scale to large scale outdoor theatre including Circus Of The Streets
