About The Centre

Filwood Community Centre is an iconic red brick building  at the head of Filwood Broadway, in Knowle West, and a central point of south Bristol. It’s well loved by the community and a point of pride for the positive changes that are happening in the area.

Our team aim to bring fun, friendship, and fantastic experiences to your lives. We host a variety of groups, activities and events – bringing you social, creative (and sometimes quirky) leisure activities to you all.

We work to ensure Knowle West and south Bristol people have access to arts and culture locally; giving a well deserved boost to our wellbeing! : ) We also love our planet and we are taking steps to help at a local level. Get in touch, we’d love to meet you and tell you more!

Management and support

In 2010, the Community in Partnership Knowle West (CIPKW) Charity took on the responsibility for the day to day management of the Centre. They are tasked with managing the centre for the benefit of the people of Knowle West, to help build a stronger community where everyone can come together and have their say in their area.

FCC is currently supported by: BRISTOL CITY COUNCIL, COMIC RELIEF, QUARTET FOUNDATION, CHURNGOLD ENVIRONMENTAL, JOHN JAMES FOUNDATION
