Creative Common


WH Bence / Tipi Events







Container Bar Fabric Canopy and Traditional Yurt Structures

Running for a number of weeks during the month of June, Creative Common was a creative initiative in the heart of the city of Bristol showcasing a spectacular array of music, performers and artists, coupled with bars and eateries. Base is proud to have played its part in supplying a PVC canopy to WH Bence, working on behalf of Inside Out Events, for The Goods Yard container bar as well as three yurt structures for Tipi Events.

Our Solution

The Goods Yard bar was creatively imagined with two industrial containers serving an open-air decking area. We manufactured a PVC fabric canopy to envelope and extend from the containers to create a sheltered alfresco drinking area, allowing customers to enjoy the facilities whatever the weather. Base also manufactured the fabric roofs and sidewalls for three traditional yurts in the Creative Common area.


The cultural installation opened with the critically acclaimed BIANCO circus. Esther O’Callaghan OBE, Acting Creative Producer for Creative Common commented “Creative Common 2013 will showcase the best of Bristol and welcome artists and audiences both local and international to the Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone in a clear demonstration of how creativity can bring these public spaces to life”.
