“The Bristol Independent District which is represented by the Gloucester Road Business Improvement District is delighted to be supporting Bristol’s first Independent Fete organised by the Bristol Association of Restaurants, Bars and Independent Establishments at the local football ground.  A festival style event that unites independent traders and their community is what we love!  One time the Memorial Stadium was getting ready to become a Sainsbury’s supermarket and so it’s really pleasing to see it now hosting this exciting weekend event that celebrates being indie along with the Dinema outdoor cinema, street food, drink, live music and more.  See you there!”

This is a FREE event that is not to be missed!
