“I firmly believe that the arts can assist in addressing a number of difficult and pressing policy challenges including ageing, long-term conditions, loneliness and mental health. The arts can help keep us well and be part of creating a healthy society. The time has come to recognise the powerful contribution they can make to our health and wellbeing.” Lord Howarth of Newport

Beyond Bristol

Bristol enjoys a fantastic location in the heart of the West Country, with some of England's finest countryside stretching out in all directions from the city. It's also close to some fantastic coastal resorts.

From the regal Georgian architecture of Bath, to the honey-coloured houses and villages of the Cotswolds, there is much to see and do within just a short distance of Bristol.
