We're off to a flying start...

Launch Event in numbers…

The Bristol Housing festival Launch…

The Bristol Housing Festival launched on the 19th October 2018 with an exhibition on Waterfront Square, BS1. During the 17 days the exhibition was open we welcomed 6,124 visitors to the site, hosted over 650 people at 6 evening events, showcased 32 different exhibitors, and would like to thank the team who collectively gave over 6,000 volunteer hours as well as the 20 supporters, sponsors and partners who made this possible. This event was designed to showcase some of the amazing innovations that exist in housing and community building and encourage positive conversation within the city about what might be possible over the next five years. And so the festival begins...
