As the world opened up once again, we were keen to offer our members more creative ways of networking, so we teamed up with Outside to organise these networking sessions with groups of 12 people (similar to our members’ lunches) who are keen to don their walking boots and explore the stunning countryside around Bristol and Bath. A great opportunity for members to make some new connections within the industry whilst getting some much needed fresh air!
The meeting point for our Walk & Talk will be this car park in Keynsham (BS31 2FD), ready to set off for the walk at 9.30am. The car park is just around the corner from Keynsham train station for those who would prefer to travel by train. We will explore the Avon Valley for an approx. 2.5 hour circular walk, with the option to stay and carry on chatting in the Lock Keeper pub afterwards, perhaps with a nice cold drink and some lunch.
During the walk, you’ll get to spend 10-15 minutes chatting to each of your fellow walkers. No agenda as such, just clear open space for thinking, connecting, sharing experiences about your businesses and exploring possibilities. The BCI team will be joining the group too so it’s a great chance to chat to them about getting the most out of your BCI membership.
This event is exclusively for BCI members and registration is required in advance via the button below. For those who are also members of Outside, this event is free of charge. If you’re not a member of Outside, the cost will be £10+VAT.
Our members’ lunches, a long term fixture in the BCI events calendar, are still continuing as normal every month (mixture of online and in-person) throughout the year, but we want to keep offering these walking sessions too which will start from different locations around the area on a quarterly basis.
Bristol Creative Industries is the membership network that supports the region's creative sector to learn, grow and connect, driven by the common belief that we can achieve more collectively than alone.
