The Bridge Studios Launch Party
We opened our second site The Bridge Studios in October 2017. The site was in a serious state of disrepair, roofs had to be fixed, toilets installed, walls built and lastly the shipping containers sited and fitted.
The Bridge site has 4 large warehouse spaces, a portacabin and 7 shipping container studios. The next six months were about finding the right residents to full the spaces and by August of this year we were ready to launch with a host of great creative business’ onsite. Find out more about all the business’ that moved into the spaces here.
We were all nervous about the launch, you never know with an event if people will actually come! Especially as the The Bridge site is on the border of Canton, Fairwater, Ely… we had experience of events in Canton but had no idea if our location would work for a public event.
It turned out we had no reason to be concerned as it was brilliant! At the Bridge we have 4 foodie business’ - Fritti, Mr Croquewich, Bodloni and Holy Yolks, plus a brand new Microbrewery run by an all female team. This meant we had lots of tasty food on offer at the launch and Arcadian serving cold pints, we never should have worried!
We all enjoyed it so much we will be having another event in the near future so watch this space.
