Whitfield Tabernacle, Kingswood

In Summer 2021 Bricks was appointed to work on behalf of the Whitfield Tabernacle Trust to review the best community and creative opportunities for the Grade I Listed Whitfield Tabernacle in Kingswood, South Gloucestershire.

Following this appraisal, we are continuing to work closely with the Whitfield Tabernacle Trust and South Gloucestershire Council to assess how the building’s redevelopment will play a key role in the new cultural quarter proposed for Kingswood and national Government’s Future High Streets Fund for the area.


Bricks works with Bristol’s creative, local and social enterprise communities to programme collaborative activities and secure permanent spaces for those communities to embed in place and build sustainable futures.

We believe in the civic role of artists and that through collaboration with the community, we can have a strong collective voice to influence the positive growth of our city.

Working with the Trust’s vision for the building to be a focus for the arts, education and heritage related to the building’s former uses. We have prepared proposals for the Trust and Local Authority to review.

This project is ongoing and we will update on the next stage once we have received and reviewed feedback from the client.
