Where can I attend a Bristol open day?

Every year Access Creative college run a series of open days in Bristol. They help students discover more about gaining skills for a career in the arts, computing and esports. Here’s some information about them.

The future is creative! In 2017 the creative sector contributed just over £100 billion to the UK economy, and in May this year the government announced that the creative industries are to receive a 1 million job boost. This will add £50bn in value to the sector by 2030. 

That is a huge positive for those wanting to pursue an arts career.

Our open days in Bristol are a great way to sample and discover more about the courses on offer. You can also get a real sense of the atmosphere and culture, speak to our tutors and see what further education options are available to you. 

If you feel confident in what you want to do you can apply for courses there and then. You can also, however, simply check out our facilities such as our recording studios, production suites, computer labs, Bierkeller performance space and green screen studio. There’s more than enough to discover if you’re looking to attend a Bristol open day.
