The Bishopston Society is throwing open its doors for a celebration of Bishopston’s world-class social life, in a change to our normal public meeting format, on Tuesday 2nd April, 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start, at Gloucester County Cricket Club.
We've also issued a public call for nominations for the organisations, individuals, events and activities that YOU think make up Bishopston's lively social and cultural scene.
We all know that Bishopston is a handsome area, with streets of attractive houses. It boasts the best high street in the country in the shape of the Gloucester Road. It’s by no means rural, but enjoys access to parks, allotments and green spaces.
But as well as the built, economic and natural environments, we love Bishopston’s social environment too. So we think it’s time to celebrate Bishopston’s cultural amenities and social life! And the contributions which local talent and innovation make beyond Bishopston, to Bristol, the UK, and the world!
Furthermore, we want YOU (our members, and other local residents) to set the agenda for this celebration, rather than setting it for you.
Which Bishopston cultural groups do you love, and why? What social events and organisations do you want to tell others about? Which cultural icons in our midst should we boast about beyond our boundaries? What unique, intriguing and world-class contributions do Bishopston-borne people and ideas make?
Call for nominations
In this celebration we’re moving away from the norm of pre-arranged guest talks. Instead we’re inviting YOU to make nominations: which individuals or organisations would YOU like others to know about and celebrate?
Please let us know who you think fits the bill by dropping an email to .
Self-nominations are acceptable! Don’t be shy – put yourself or your organization forward!
Save the date!
Our celebration takes place on Tuesday, 2nd April 2019 at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start, finishing at 9.30 pm, at Gloucester County Cricket Club, Brightside Ground, Nevil Road, Bristol BS7 9EJ. Kids welcome.
No need to book in advance. Admission free to members, £2 to non-members, at the door.
