Welcome to the winter activities library

Available from now until 10 January 2021

This festive season, the Global Lounge would like to share with you list of ideas and activities, both online and in-person, that you can do on your own or as part of your social bubble. The activities included are relaxing, fun and sociable and aim to inspire you to get out and about in Bristol, or have fun at home over the holidays. These activities will also contribute to both your cultural and educational experience.

There is something for everyone!  

Please see the 10 categories of activities below – each of the listings in these categories will include a quick info section which explains how to access each activity.

The different categories recognise that we are all individuals who enjoy a range of different interests. Activities may focus on what is available in-and-around Bristol, or may go further afield to include national or even international treasures. All timings are indicated in GMT.
