  • Craft Fest Makes its Debut!

    Local “craftist” Ali Smith has teamed up with other craft leaders to offer what is hoped to be a new regular Long Ashton event. Occurring On 19th October in the Long Ashton Folk Hall, this new venture aims to spread the word about how good craft can be for you, mentally and creatively – as well as raising money for charity and providing a space where you can “get away from it all.” There will be tea, homemade cakes and a variety of workshops including making your own jewellery, creating a felt landscape picture, printing your own scarf or tote bag, making unique Christmas decorations and learning wet felting technique!

    The event will support the St Peter’s Hospice and Childlink, a charity which has connected the event with a girls’ school in India. The workshops are £20 each, covering the cost of hiring the hall, materials, refreshments and a donation to the hospice. They all run for approximate 2 hours morning and afternoon. Go for the whole day, lunch included, and take part in two workshops, just £45 for the day!

  • Bristol Epic 10k

    Tough Runner UK are welcoming the first Bristol Epic 10K to the beautiful Ashton Court Estate on 26th October. Tough Runner UK have selected locations all across the country for their “epic,” races and Bristol stood out as a “must have,” location for them.

    The event is more than a race. Tough Runner UK believe that all of their participants should be getting maximum value for money, and so they should be certain to expect an epic show.
