Their initial concept was simple, to hold an annual urban paint festival in Bristol inviting artists from all over the country and from overseas. This years event attracted 140 artists to paint.
Upfest was also raising money for NACOA (National Association for Children of Alcoholics), a very worthy cause.
Myself and Bristol legend Jody teamed up to knock out a wall for this event at The Try Again pub. This great establishment on Greenway Bush Lane and the junction with Lower Sidney Street was so named because of the earlier attempts to obtain a licence which were repeatedly rejected. One day they got lucky. The current landlord is John and unfortunately you wont get any discount on ales mentioning you saw his pub on this blog but if you are in the Bristol area, pay it a visit and have a look at some great artwork in a real down to earth Pub.
