Reimagining and redeveloping The Courts Imagine a place where a young person’s background, race, beliefs, gender, physical ability and economic status had nothing to do with how good they could be, what they could achieve. A space where they could fully explore their creative potential, receive support and mentoring, and find meaningful work. That place is the Old Bristol Magistrates Courts (The Courts). An enterprise centre to help young people set up their own creative businesses and develop their opportunities. A place where there are no barriers to their future, where the only things that count are their abilities and talents. Thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund and Bristol City Council we are developing detailed business and architectural plans to reimagine and redevelop this historic city landmark as a place that will complement Bristol’s renowned and growing creative industries sector.

Meet #TeamTurkey The talented young people and creatives in The Christmas Turkey Young people were supported throughout the process by: Nick Young – Creative Director Emily Bull – Creative Producer Alice Nicholas – Writer Shaun Luker – Stage Manager Jason King – Lighting Designer Andreea Dumitrache – Marketing Assistant Annette Johns – Production Manager For some, it was the first production they were involved in. For others, it provided the perfect opportunity to improve their already brilliant acting skills and pull it off with a bang. We are very proud of our Team Turkey for working together very well and learning from each other. We saw their confidence grow from week to week. No matter how long the hours or grim the weather, you kept focusing on delivering a great show.
