Glos Rd Central

Room 212 is at the centre Glos Rd Central, a thriving Art & Lifestyle section of Bristol's famous Gloucester Road

Glos Rd Central was created by traders on the central part of Gloucester Road -‘ the longest street of independent traders in  Europe’ They join together to share events, ideas and information from our community. Our shops are from ‘Pigsty Hill’ up and range from cafes, art galleries, gift shops & furniture makers to fresh fruit & veg shops, hardware stores & bike shops.

Room 212 is the main organiser of regular events such as the Glos Rd Central Mayfest, which this year takes place on Saturday May 6th. We invite artists to put on creative activities along with other community groups, plant sales, children’s activities, live music and dance. For lots of information about Mayfest read the latest edition of our lovely local magazine Bishopston Matters

The 212 Eco House will be open to visitors with tea and cake in the garden and craft activities.
