New Committee elected for 2018-19

Thanks to all who attended the Community Association AGM last night.

The AGM reelected Jim Haywood as chair, and we have a new treasurer, Stu Lloyd.

Huge thanks are due to Simon Haywood, who has acted as treasurer for more years than we can count.

We also have a new 13-member committee who will meet every month to oversee the running of the Community Centre.

Art on the Hill 2018: 6-7 Oct

We’re pleased to be a venue for this year’s Art on the Hill arts trail, which is taking place on Sat 6 – Sun 7 October. On Saturday evening we’re also hosting Nearly Unplugged 3, featuring local music.

Art On The Hill is Windmill Hill and Victoria Park arts trail which spans across 2 days. The trail hosts art and creations by local and Bristol artists spanning across 40 venues. The trail runs from 11am-5pm and hosts a variety of activities from free workshops, live music and exhibited art.


Nearly Unplugged 3: After a day of viewing art, put up your tired feet and enjoy a relaxing evening of singers, singing groups, poets, players and performers, with good food and drinks served from the Bar and Kitchen! Come along to socialise with other artists/performers and relax with friends/family. Performers:

DJ Lord Dub
Vinyl DJ, Selecting classic 45’s. Spinning some of the greatest Pop, Rock, Reggae, Funk, Disco and Soul ever put on record.

Spikey Tim
Spikey Tim is a performance poet who has been described as “Energetic and charismatic” and “Anarchic and comedic.” He leads poetry workshops for kids, helps to run the Bristol Hammer & Tongue poetry slam, and is a part of the “Echoes & Edges” music/ poetry collective.

The Horsley Band
A longstanding (30+ years) collective of folk musicians originating from the beautiful village of Horsley in Gloucestershire.

Putting the chic in a cappella…!
Quartet who perform a range of popular songs in four part harmony, available for any special occasion!

Breakout Singers
Break Out Voices is a new choir with a difference. Based in Windmill Hill, Bristol, UK we are a group of amateur singers that combines A Cappella vocals with percussion, movement, simple beat-boxing and noise-making. More of a ‘vocal band’ than a choir we will be singing a repertoire of popular music arranged by band leader Kate Fletcher.

The Big However
Using discarded musicians found locally, The Big However play their own peculiar version of post truth, sub-tonic, melodic, bristolian lo-fi, folk, indie.
