TAKE FIVE – The Great Tea Cosy Auction!

Part of TAKE FIVE – Weston Arts + Health Festival

The Festival Hub is a beautiful canvas stretch tent, with accessible seating, that will keep you sheltered come rain or shine.  Please do dress appropriately for the outdoors.

Supported by Alliance Homes, crochet-tastic members of Weston’s community have been busy taking five minutes out of their day to make an amazing array of tea cosies that warm up further opportunities for friendly cuppas in the future.   You can get involved by making a tea cosy in the run-up to the festival, or place your bid at the Great Tea Cosy Auction!  

Monies raised will be split between Weston Hospicecare and Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity – BRING CASH IF PREFER!

When communities come together, amazing things happen! We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the fantastic response from people in our local communities, crochet-ing cosies for the Weston Arts + Health Festival.
Due to this epic tea-cosy making, we will be holding a silent auction throughout the Festival Weekend to run alongside The Great Tea Cosy Auction on Sunday 14 July. Come along and place your bids!

2024 is the fifth year for Weston Arts + Health Festival, a partnership between UHBW NHS Foundation Trust and Super Culture that shines a light on the creative provision that exists in Weston year-round to bring people together in positive, shared activity that can support both physical and mental health.

The words 'arts + health' are in black lettering on a bright yellow backdrop. The character '+' is set against a blue sandcastle with a flag on top
