What is the festival?

‘Our Neighbourhood’ Community Festival is a week of community activity across Bishopston, Cotham & Redland.  The festival is coordinated by the BCR Neighbourhood Partnership, with many of the events being run by different local groups and businesses.

The aims of the week are:

  • To encourage people’s engagement in and contribution towards the well-being of their neighbourhood – helping it to improve
  • To create opportunities for people to get to know other local people, and to learn about and celebrate their neighbourhood and what it has to offer
  • To increase awareness of the BCR Neighbourhood Partnership and other community groups, the work they do for local people, and to inform people as to how they can find out more and get involved.

Who are the organising the BCR NP festival?

The Neighbourhood Partnership is run by and for local residents, in partnership with the council and local police. Our role is to get things done in response to issues raised by the local community.

The festival is coordinated by the Festival Committee- part of the Communications & Engagement Group of the Neighbourhood Partnership – a small group of local resident volunteers and a couple of council officers.

Tell me more about the festival

The festival is about celebrating our local area and the talent of local people.

The festival is not a money-making venture – its aims are community orientated.  Most events and activities are offered to participants free of charge or will simply cover their costs.

‘Our Neighbourhood’ Community Festival first took place in May 2013.  Far surpassing expectations, the festival programme comprised nearly 40 events over 8 days – public meetings and workshops; markets; street entertainment; volunteering sessions; walks and nature trails; children’s activities, and music, dance, sport, health and lifestyle taster sessions.
