The 2019 academic year has now closed for PUF.
Plans for 2020 include a collaboration with Bristol Learning Festival in March and a talk on Hillfield's Homes for Heroes in February. We start the New Year however, by finding out all about SLEEP - why we do it, how we do it and how we might get ore of it!
More details to follow.
What is the People's University of Fishponds?
PUF runs occasional talks and events that are aimed at being accessible, affordable and friendly. We do it because it's fun and interesting - any money we raise is just used to hire the venues and cover expenses.
Over the last three years we've had talks about history, psychology, gardening, orphanages, bats and philosophy. We've built and played unusual musical instruments, recorded a pop song and learnt how to conduct an orchestra. We've heard from young politicians, our own MP, Bristol's poet laureate and perhaps most movingly from refugees and those seeking asylum who live in Fishponds.
All our events are relaxed, there's no surprise audience participation(!), people often come on their own and its not unusual to see people enjoying a cup of tea or glass of wine as they listen.
Tickets = £3.50 unless otherwise stated.
For some events you will need to book in advance - please check the listing for details.
