#SocialSaturday is the big event in the annual calendar for UK Social Enterprises and We Make Bristol will be celebrating in style this year on Saturday 13 October.

Local MP, Darren Jones, will be showing his support for the work that we do for Bristol’s creative community by visiting the shop at 9:30 and if you want to feast you eyes on even more than the shop has to offer you can go along to the special We Make Bristol pop up market between 11am and 3pm at the local Methodist Church on Westbury Hill

As with all things We Make Bristol the market will be full of unique, good quality and affordable items made by some of Bristol’s most talented artists, designers and creatives.

If you are feeling creative yourself you can also take part in one of our candle making or fused glass workshops too!

Show your support for UK Social Enterprises and join us to celebrate the work that We Make Bristol does for Bristol’s independent artists, designers and creatives
