The Spark is alive and safe. While there will be no publishing this year, next year with your help we will be back up and running with a new team and a new community focused energy.

We love what The Spark has done for Bristol since 1993. A small team are currently working to find a new beginning and a new model for success.

If you want to see The Spark back on the streets and on your web browser please email us at return@thespark.co.uk

Thanks The new Spark team

Saint David's Day (Welsh: Dydd Gŵyl Dewi) is the feast day of Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, and falls on 1 March each year. The date of 1 March was chosen in remembrance of the death of Saint David. Tradition holds that he died on that day in 589. The date was declared a national day of celebration within Wales in the 18th century. (info from Wikipedia)
