Our Amazing Team

This event would not have been possible without the hard work and commitment from our amazing event team:


Nadia Abdulla, Event Director

On Sunday 1st June 2014, we transformed Park Street, Bristol into a pop up park complete with artificial grass, plants and even an ice cream van!


Thousands of people came to our event and were able to enjoy over fifty businesses who were trading outside on Park Street and College Green Road. We also featured an entertainment stage with acts performing from all areas, from music to comedy who came from not only Bristol but from across the UK!


Why did we do this? In recent years, Park Street has been no longer seen as a destination point, affecting the trade for local independent and national businesses. A group volunteers made up of local traders and professionals came together with the intent to produce a high profile event for all of the community to attend and to help build Park Street’s identity again – and that’s exactly what we did!
