Immerse yourself in a programme of exhibitions, special events, artist talks, family activities, public artworks and performances by outstanding contemporary artists in locations in Bristol and Bath.

Art Weekender – Bristol & Bath is a three-day celebration of the visual arts across the two cities taking place from Friday 30 October to Sunday 1 November. Now in its second year, the Art Weekender is produced by Situations in partnership with over 30 arts venues, artist-led groups and arts producers. The weekender brings together exhibitions, one-off special events, artists’ talks, family activities and trails, public artworks and performances by outstanding contemporary artists in multiple locations across the two cities. There is free access to almost all venues and projects.

Come and explore the art in the heart of the West: visit artists’ studios, follow a trail to the unexpected and see the two cities through new eyes.
