Hello! Southmead

Our next fun, family weekend is for visitors who live in Southmead, or those with children who go to school in this area.

We're all about to building strong, sustainable relationships with communities in Bristol. In regular weekends throughout the year we say Hello! to communities who are currently under-represented in our visitors. These free weekends give families and community groups, who may not visit otherwise, a chance to explore We The Curious together.


3 Aug - 4 Aug

How Much


Who for

Southmead Residents

Hello! Community Weekends are a chance for families and community groups to discover We The Curious, for free.

All ages are welcome to join in with a whole range of interactive activities, including:

  • Special activities and programmes to be announced, including storytelling and lots of hands-on activities
  • Explore over 250 hands-on exhibits
  • Plus, gaze at the stars inside our Planetarium*, inside the big silver ball on Millennium Square! (*small additional fee applies)


To qualify for free entry, visitors must bring and complete the Hello! Southmead flyer which will be distributed through local community groups and schools.* Ask your local commuity group or school for a flyer, fill it out and bring it along on the day to get a free day of exploring!

*Please be aware that We The Curious reserves the right to refuse admission if the venue reaches capacity.

Top tips

  • As long as you have a valid ticket, you can leave and re-enter the venue as you wish throughout the day
  • Bring your own food to tuck into in our picnic area 
  • Ask one of our lovely front desk team if you'd like a quiet room for prayer 

Please note: if you are organising a minibus, please arrange parking in advance by calling our Bookings team on 0117 915 1000 (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm, excluding bank holidays).
