    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!

A History of Stokes Croft in 100 Objects: 16th – 19th Dec


17th Nov – 3rd Dec: FUTUREMUSEUM presents: Catalysm

The Museum of Catalysm features a range of artefacts, scale models and reconstructions showing what life was like before, during, and after the catalytic events of the 21st and 22nd centuries. Showcasing treasures from the age of affluence alongside examples of the creative solutions that characterised life during and after the crisis, the Museum presents a spectacular and fascinating archaeology of growth, collapse and survival – and the lessons to be learnt from our turbulent past.

After its first spectacular debut as a travelling exhibit in the Bristol Village Fayre earlier this year, FUTUREMUSEUM is looking to expand its display to incorporate a greater range of exhibits from its collection, alongside new models and artist’s reconstructions that will focus on the time of regeneration and recovery that was the birth of our society as it is today.

Piecing together a fragmented history from the objects and stories which reach us from the past, the exhibition perhaps asks more questions than it can answer, but there is plenty to think about in the well-considered displays, and you will find your imagination fired by the vivid stories and portrayals of life as it may have been.

Emporium and Classics threatened with eviction – BUT STILL OPEN!

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.

Meeting at the Emporium Mondays at 8PM with BHAM for further discussion


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).

4th – 24th Oct: 101 Days 101 Paintings VERMIN Room 101

Room 101 is a place introduced in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. It is a torture chamber in the Ministry of Love in which the Party attempts to subject a prisoner to his or her own worst nightmare, fear or phobia.

“You asked me once, what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world.”
