The Fire Station is in Bedminster, very close to the centre of Bristol. It’s been, surprisingly, a fire station, as well as a tooling workshop and a biscuit factory. The ground floor, once a poorly designed recording studio, has played home to Jethro Tull and Damned sessions.

In 2012 it changed hands and is now in the process of receiving new guts and a substantial internal face lift. There are nine or so units housing a mix bag of screen printers, graphic designers, photographers, authors and producers.

The idea is that The Fire Station is as run as a business hub (not in a ‘I’ll give you work, if you give me work’ kind of way), promoting creativity and interaction and so becoming a generally nice place to work. There’s no air-con or reception or sparkly toilet block. But there is a great bunch of businesses that take the time to talk to each other and create a place to work that we are all proud of. The rent is pretty reasonable too. The building is a work in progress.
