October Newsletter!


Happy Birthday to us!  Happy birthday to us!  Happy birthday to uuuuus! Happy Birthday to us!

Yup, October is here again - and that can mean only one thing; people dressed in rags with white zombie faces, consumed with blood lust whilst marauding the streets of Bristol - yes!  You've got it: SHOP's birthday party!

As well as birthday festivities, we have WorkSHOPs and a scarily secret Halloween event, so let's get on with it shall we?!


On the 16th October SHOP will be a whole 7 years old!

We’re all growed up!

Join us for a slice of cake and other silly stuff – and don’t forget the presents!




Saturday 28th September

All day | Free

The TMT WorkSHOP returns!

Teaching you the simple ways to bake for yourself!  Drop in all day at SHOP.



For Halloween we want to scare the living scheisen out of you, and so to this end we have something very g-g-g-g-ghostly up our grim reeper's hood...

Here's what you do:

Between now and 30th October look out for the secret scary sign on Twitter (you'll know it when you see it).  As soon as you see it email us.  First ten people through the inbox will be treated to a scaring to death (not literally, we don't have isurance for that kind of thing)

SUMMER CINEMA ON THE STEPS: Battleship Potemkin review in pics.

 The evening of Thursday 5th of September saw the return of the open-air cinema to the steps, as part of a programme of fringe events in the build up to the Encounters Film Festival and what a night it turned out to be!

Large numbers turned up to see Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin and the assembled crowd were treated to an excellent live improvised soundtrack from local Bristol DJ Spin Thief (Adam Pinfold)

Here's some pictures and lo-res video...

SEPTEMBER Newsletter

September is here, but have no fear!  Because next month is October and that means only one thing ... it's SHOP's ... wait for it ... SEVENTH BIRTHDAY!

But, before that, let us enjoy September, or perhaps more to the point, let us enjoy our holeeedays at the end of September   That's right, toward the end of the month you'll be back in the loving embrace of SHOP-Mom.

Before that, though, we have plenty for you to feast on, and so ...

Hope to see you all there! 



The Take It and Leave It Gallery

Here are some of the latest editions to The Take It and Leave It Gallery at SHOP!

In case you didn't know,
the idea is that you take a piece of art from the gallery that you like, and donate a piece in its place. 

This beauty could be yours!
