Sponsors, Advertising and Charities

We’re always happy to hear from local businesses and organisations interested in supporting the trail. Perhaps your cafe would be an ideal exhibition venue, or your product would be of interest to trail visitors?

We distribute thousands of leaflets across Bristol and the surrounding area, with the majority being picked up in shops, cafes, bars, galleries and libraries. Unlike a blanket maildrop, this approach means most of our leaflets are read and kept by trail visitors, giving our advertisers an engaged and interested audience. We also use our website and social media to highlight our sponsors.

We find venues that have several artists, especially near the main shopping streets, generally get excellent footfall. If you have space in your business to host an exhibition it’s a great way to get people through the doors. All trail venues are marked on our trail map, both on our printed leaflets and our online map, which was viewed over 4000 times on trail weekend. You’ll also receive a signboard to signify you are an official venue. We’ve previously held exhibitions in bars, cafes and shops and can work with you to figure out the best setup.

Please get in touch to discuss the options available.

We’d also like to thank Elephant for kindly providing signage for all venues.
