Having lived in the West Country for many years, the team at Minuteman Press realised they all had a common problem; never knowing what events are on in Bristol, Bath and beyond. So often a great event is reviewed after the occasion, and it sounded brilliant – but the trick is then to remember it for next year.
Having recognised this problem, the team looked around and found that although some information was available, it was incomplete, difficult to find and in numerous cases entirely inaccurate. An idea was born, the Bristol and West Comprehensive, a definitive events guide that will benefit everyone.
Minuteman Press has done the leg work and collected events information, presented it in an easy to read format and displayed it in their print centre window for all to see. If you want to know what’s going on in the area, just look in the window!
Managing director Peter Wise said: “It has always personally frustrated me that so many great events take place in the West Country, but I only get to hear of a fraction of them. A comprehensive published listing has been required for so long. This is just the start of the initiative. The programme will be a rolling 12-month schedule, but to maintain accuracy we need the assistance of everyone. If you have an event, email us straight away and we’ll update the schedule.”
Ryan Smith, design manager, added: “I will be the first to use this listing. When you see just how many quality events are taking place, it really is incredible. I just wish I’d managed to get Glastonbury tickets!”
