Bristol Doors Open Day 2014 coincides with the last few days of ‘Back From the Front’, a collection of exhibitions commemorating the centenary of WWI. On show will be ‘Brothers in Art’ by John and Paul Nash, and ‘Shock and Awe’, a display of contemporary artists’ responses to war and its aftermath. The RWA’s exhibitions bring together an inspiring mix of famous names and emerging talent. Children's activities, including Scribble & Sketch children’s workshop, will be available. Informal tours looking at the history of the building and the current exhibitions will also be running.
Bristol Doors Open Day is a once-a-year chance to look behind closed doors and discover the city’s hidden treasures. You can explore fascinating buildings, join guided tours and enjoy a range of events and activities – all free for the day. With over 60 venues taking part this year – the event’s 21st birthday – join us for a fantastic celebration of Bristol’s history, architecture and culture.
