    How ta get ta the Emporium
  • Emporium now has a ramp

    the emporium is now accessible on both levels by wheelchairs. the shop front already had a from-street ramp, but we have now installed one further in which takes you to the small second level in the space. the incline is quite steep, please be warned, and unfortunately the toilet which we fixed up is not a big space, and there are no handles. we would love any feedback, input and advice as to how to make the space more accessible to anyone. please email!

Emporium and Classics threatened with eviction – BUT STILL OPEN!

[blip.tv http://blip.tv/play/AYKLv0YC%5D

here’s an interview on BCFM click to listen/download: BCFM radio interview NOV2010 with reg and matt

We are in court on the 7th of Jan 2011.
Any help is extremely welcome, testimonials and messages of support can be sent to emporium37@gmail.com. Testimonials as to any work done on the building would be particularly helpful.

These ‘owners’ have let the buildings rot for years and years and now have the cheek to come back and lay claim to a building they have never invested time in looking after.

They also own 41 stokes croft  – the crofters nightclub destroyed by fire. If we had not come and fixed up 35/37 stokes croft they would look the same as crofters. The owners from hong kong don’t care about the buildings, nor stokes croft, so they don’t deserve to have a say in what goes on with the building.

Check the Bristol Indymedia article for more information: Bindymedia Article
Meeting at the Emporium Mondays at 8PM with BHAM for further discussion

SEE BELOW FOR THE EVENTS ON AT THE MOMENT!

WE WILL NOT BE CLOSING OR STOPPING
This space has been going for nigh on 2 years and it won’t be taken by a rich hong kong businessman who has no interest in the building nor has done any work on it since buying it in 1993!(he hasn’t even been to bristol, and admits knowing nothing about the situation or the local area).
