It’s just over a month until Something Good, an exciting new design festival, takes over Bristol. Held over two days (6-7th October), this unique design festival includes a day of exciting and inspiring creative talks from creatives working across various disciplines, an after party and a full programme of creative workshops across the city on the Saturday.

In it’s inaugural year, Something Good is the first of it’s kind in Bristol and promises to be a jam packed festival that focuses on creativity and the magic of the creative process.

On Friday 6th October, the iconic building of St George’s plays host to a day of talks from a carefully curated team of top creatives. The line-up includes Snask, Anthony Burrill, Morag Myerscough, Trapped in Suburbia, Marta Veludo, Brendan Dawes, Wilfrid Wood and Gavin Strange. The day will be hosted by founder and editor-in-chief of Intern Magazine, Alec Dudson.

Throughout the day they’ll share stories and anecdotes of how they got to where they are today, how they tackle challenging creative briefs, where they find inspiration and how they keep themselves stimulated outside of commercial work. There’ll also be on extra activities and installations on site, including live screen printing from People of Print, live demos from Joto and a special VR experience.  

Saturday 7th October is a chance for people to get their hands dirty, with a series of hands-on workshops hosted by leading creatives, in venues across the city.  

Workshops include Letterpress with Anthony Burrill, Working with Wood with Miscellaneous Adventures, Tarot-card making with Sophy Hollington, Plasticine portraits with Wilfrid Wood, Portfolio reviews with Handsome Frank, Papercutting with Sam Pierpoint and Out There with Intern Magazine.

Tickets for the Friday and workshops are on sale now via the Something Good site:
