Hi Captain! I, GriffyKate, am calling the Bristol Awkwardeers to arms; any chance you could do a shout-out for me?
I am going to be at The Canteen on Stokes Croft from 11am to 3pm on Saturday 26th October. Here’s the full address:
80 Stokes Croft
There is a car park at the back of the building that does one hour for free or all day for £5. For more ‘how to find it’ info you can click here:
The Canteen is on the ground floor and accessible by ramp, and has a disabled access bathroom. It also has a take-a-book-leave-a-book library corner and serves reasonably priced organic meals (think pub-grub prices), as well as cheese boards, bread-and-olives, and a selection of cakes. The bar serves hot and cold drinks including alcoholic beverages.
I will be sitting at a table from 11 ó clock wearing a rainbow tie. I will have a Carcassonne set with me, as well as some colouring sheets and a small pack of coloured pencils.
It seems a bit quieter than our previous venue at the Watershed. I’m thinking if it does get loud, we can split into a games table and a colouring table, and be able to converse more easily in those smaller groups.
Please do bring an easy-to-grasp game, some colouring sheets, or some coloured pencils.You can reach me by emailing griffykate AT gmail DOT com or you can join the Bristol Awkward Army Facebook group:Looking forward to seeing you!

Hello, just want to add a bit more detail about how to get there by transit from the train stations. The nearest train station is Montpelier, which is a single-track station with a relatively limited timetable but might serve you well. In addition, both the main Bristol train stations are served by buses that go right by Hamilton House; the 73 or 74 from Bristol Parkway or the 70 from Bristol Temple Meads. Bristol Temple Meads is closer, about 15 minutes less time on the bus. Some details are here: http://www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/bristol_bath/journey_planning/
Unfortunately these buses are with First, and on First buses they don’t announce the stops as they come, which is inconvenient for people visiting from out of town. A day bus ticket on First is £4 for a day pass, which is usually less than two singles. If you buy singles ask for a single to Stokes Croft.
If you’re in a group of 3 or 4 it might be worth your while to get a taxi from Temple Meads, which I think would cost £10 or less. I haven’t done it in a while so I can’t remember.
Thanks Jill! 🙂
There was a Bristol meetup a while ago, wasn’t there? How did that one go? Was the turnout good?
Yeah it was, I think there must have been 12-15 of us? I don’t think we’ve ever had fewer than six!
Cool! I may well head down if I remember to. Thanks!
