Just a reminder that all our courses for 2023/24 are now available to view on the website.
Booking for courses online, in person, and over the phone will open at 10am on Monday morning.
Phones lines can be busy during the first week so please bear with us if you don’t get through straight away.
There are 100s of courses and workshops and I hope that all your old favourites are there as well as some new things that might catch your eye.
When you book with us online, you will receive two emails; one to confirm your payment has gone through and one to confirm your booking. If you only receive one email, please give us a call on 0117 903 8844 just to check everything is OK. Very occasionally, the internet link drops out during booking process resulting in the payment going through but the place isn’t booked – so do keep a look out for the second email.

Bristol Pride – 8 July 2023
Bristol Pride is a unique and important event that celebrates the LGBT+ community offering the chance to connect people.
As well as showcasing our wonderfully diverse community, Pride is about overcoming prejudice, hatred, reducing isolation, and showing members of the LGBT+ community that they are not alone.
The Parade March takes place on Saturday gathering from 10am at the bandstand in Castle Park and on the move from 10.45am. The March goes around Broadmead, up Union Street, down Baldwin Street to the Centre and ends at the Amphitheatre at the Docks.
The Parade welcomes everyone who wants to celebrate, champion and progress LGBT+ human rights to join in.
The full pride festival takes place on the Downs on Saturday, and you can find more information on their website www.bristolpride.co.uk
To all those taking part in Bristol Pride we hope you have an amazing day.
We stand with you in challenging discrimination and homophobia, promoting equality and diversity and generally working towards creating a community where everyone can be themselves and feel safe and valued.
