Future Groups

These are proposed new groups which have not started to meet yet.

They are just waiting for more members or some help in running them.

Use the links to message for more information or to join a group.

If you have an idea for a new group, speak to your Groups Coordinator.

Art Film Group - the idea would be that the members [max 8] would watch a film independently then meet together once a month to discuss it in a quiet backroom of a pub or similar. We would decide on a programme as a group, and members would need access to Netflix, Amazon Prime, Curzon or any other streaming facility.

The characteristics of an Art Film would be based on classic small budget productions, dealing with political issues, psychological, foreign, a director's particular style, aesthetic value, memorable, iconic, probably not modern; for example, High Noon, Kes, White Ribbon. The group would run along book group lines and be for those with a serious interest in film.

If interested please send a message to Marguerite Valentine

Painting & Drawing in East Bristol – Janey is hoping to start a group for aspiring and practicing artists in East Bristol.  Initially meeting once a month, bring your current project or a new project and reference. 

Suggested media are watercolour, acrylics, inks, pen or pencil, charcoal and pastels.  Let’s get together to support each other and share our skills.  

Contact Janey Edwards if you’re interested.

Eastside Cinema Group – potentially based at Longwell Green Vue cinema but to include occasional visits elsewhere. Founder members of the group will decide on the frequency of visits e.g. a regular monthly visit and/or ad hoc visits depending on what is showing. 

Register your interest by messaging the NE Groups Coordinator.

Song Writing – a new member wishes to start a song writing group with the aim of getting feedback for her songs and to find other musicians to collaborate with. All musical genres welcome. Play live or your recorded songs. If this interests you, please contact Philippa.

Technology, Medicine and AI – are you interested in the latest developments in technology, medicine, artificial intelligence? If yes, please let Richard know especially if you are, or you know, an expert in the field. This could be the foundation of a new group.

Wine Appreciation – this proposed group has had much interest since it was suggested. It is likely to be set up in Spring 2024. If you would like more information contact Richard.
