About this event

On Tuesday 23rd November, Bristol Drugs Project invite you to the premiere of a brand new documentary film by Irene Carter that showcases the music and personal stories of Bristol Recovery Orchestra.

Bristol Recovery Orchestra is one of BDP’s creative support groups that work with anyone who has been affected by drug or alcohol use – people in recovery or working towards recovery, their families and carers, and those who work or volunteer in treatment services.

Along with the premiere, there will also be performances from We Are Not Saints’ artists Man Like Malcolm, Milky and Deiphos Jay. We Are Not Saints is the UK’s only recovery record label and will be making the trip up from Brighton for the evening.

Also they will be showing a short film to mark International Overdose Awareness Day this year, made in collaboration with organisations up and down the country, including the Bristol Drugs Project.

WANS are also working with the recovery community in Bristol to set up regular Sober Music Nights: live music events without drugs and alcohol in the picture.

Doors open at 7:00pm for a 7:30pm start.

How to Book

Spaces are FREE but limited, so please book your ticket via Eventbrite.

This event is 100% free; however, if you wish to make a donation, it will help BDP run creative support groups like Bristol Recovery Orchestra and Rising Voices Recovery Choir. These groups are not prioritised by the government or funding bodies, so they rely on fundraising and the goodwill of people donating their time to operate.

Please contact info[at] or 0117 987 6000.
