Festival Venue Information

We have two main festival venues on Bristol’s harbourside, the main Festival Hub at Watershed, and Arnolfini. The two venues are very close to each other, on opposite sides of the harbour.

If you are trying to reach the Encounters team urgently, please call our temporary office number during the Festival: +44 (0)117 927 5155.
