The Great British High Street – Glorious Gloucester Road

Date: Wednesday, Apr 1 - Friday, Apr 24
Venue: Alchemy 198

Exhibition of photographs from The Great British High Street – Glorious Gloucester Road, the new collection of images from Bristol photographer Colin Moody.

From publishers The History Press:

“Traders are the heart, soul and backbone of our high streets. Their shops provide a focus for community, a friendly face and in hard times a helping hand.

“This project recognises the personalities and services we rely on and which add to the layers of history already laid down with Gloucester Road as the Great Bristol High Street.

“Following a single first photo post on social media, dozens of people who run, or know people who run, indie businesses have come forward to tell Colin their stories. Now a major project promoted by Visit Bristol and Destination Bristol, this project tells the community story of local heroes and showcases Bristol’s indie spirit to a wider field.”

Apr 2-25, Alchemy 198, 198 Gloucester Road, Tue-Fri 11am-11.45pm / Sat 11am-12.30am. For more info, visit
