Help Barton Hill Festival raise £4000 without spending a penny: The Results
Thank you to all those who voted for Barton Hill Festival when doing their weekly shop at Tesco, Travelling Light were delighted to receive second place and £2000 to help deliver a free family arts festival for the community of Barton Hill.
Barton Hill Festival was selected to compete in the Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ scheme, this meant that Tesco customers in East Bristol could vote in store for which charity initiative they would like to see supported. We were proud to be selected among two other worthy causes and can't wait to put the donation towards the festival which will celebrate the fantastic creativity and diversity of Barton Hill, where Travelling Light are based.

Barton Hill Festival will take place this autumn, hosted by Travelling Light, Up Our Street and Barton Hill Settlement and the programme is already packed with a range of performances, culturally diverse activities and food from around the world. The partners have been holding regular festival forums for local people to have their say. This is an event curated for and by the people of Barton Hill. We’ve had some brilliant ideas, from planet-friendly bug hotels to a sensory exploration room for young people with additional needs.
There really is something for everyone, so whether you were doing the big shop or just picking up a few bits for tonight, your vote madee a huge difference to the families of Barton Hill.
Created and delivered by young people, community members and professional artists, Barton Hill Festival will run from 11am to 5.45pm on Sunday 29th October 2017.
