Make Sunday Special

more-info

This year Make Sunday Special is coming to Bristol's neighbourhoods!

As well as keeping the fun going in the city centre on the first Sunday of each month until the end of September, residents and local groups are also Making Sunday Special in Avonmouth, Bedminster, Easton and Lawrence Hill and Hartcliffe.

Trinity Community Arts, Stapleton Road Working Group, Stapleton Road Traders and Up Our Street are working together to make Stapleton Road's first 'Make Sunday Special' the best in the city!

The event on Sunday 23 August, 12pm-6pm, will be a community celebration involving a programme of contemporary World Music, Food, Stalls, Dance, Performances and Film, all representative of the local area - The World On One Street!

Pat Usherwood, Chair of the Stapleton Road Working Group said; “We welcome this opportunity to work in partnership with others to make Stapleton Road ‘Make Sunday Special’, a true reflection of the diverse community in which Stapleton Road serves. We aim to showcase and celebrate local talent, skills and community spirit”.

The event has received funding support from Bristol City Council and is part of their wider Make Sunday Special programme. Visit Bristol City Council's website for all the latest news on everything that is going on as part of Make Sunday’s Special!

project-history

Trinity aims to engage local people in creative activities, designed to celebrate diversity and strengthen community cohesion

Trinity works with different partner groups to deliver community arts activities to help bring people together and celebrate the diversity of inner-city Bristol.

We also support groups to deliver their own activities through the Trinity Community Initiative - our free hall-space scheme. Each year we provide over 1,000 hours of free hall space so that community and grass-roots groups can deliver their own activities and events.

We also deliver our own projects thanks to funding from local grant supporters including The Quartet Community Foundation and the Neighbourhood Partnership.

Trinity works with other community buildings within the city to try to support and promote wider development and regeneration through investment in community assets. Read the Community Asset Transfer Report 2013 for more information.
