Get arty for 2017!

We're not shy here in Bedminster when it comes to inspiring your artistic side with Upfest Festival, Pom Pom bombing and a gorilla with a specially knitted jumper which changes with the seasons. As if you needed encouragement to take up a new hobby for's some inspiration!


The Upfest Gallery is Bristol’s longest running urban art gallery, with the largest range of spray paint colours and Posca paint pens in Bristol.  Pop into one of their regular exhibitions for inspiration and join a graffiti workshop to try your hand...then when you've perfected your style...apply to spray at the festival!
