We’ve been selected to join the creative heart of Bristol at the renowned Tobacco Factory. The Tobacco Factory building is one of the few survivors from the great Imperial Tobacco site on Raleigh Road, Ashton, Bristol. It was saved from demolition by Bristol architect George Ferguson who has turned it into a model of urban regeneration. The building’s primary purpose is to house carefully curated radical independents from the creative industries as well as one of the most exciting theatre venues in the country.
The Tobacco Factory has a firm policy of sourcing local goods and services wherever possible, and in particular supporting small independent suppliers. Most of the inhabitants live locally and walk or cycle to work. The vast majority of waste is recycled, with all available areas of roof covered with solar panels to power the building and stored rainwater to service the bathrooms. Come and say hello!
