2.30pm, Friday 10th March 2023

St. George’s Bristol, BS1 5RR

BDP’s staff and trustees invite you to join us in celebrating the life of the tenacious & fabulous Maggie Telfer.

Maggie inspired and enabled the transformation of countless lives in Bristol & beyond through her groundbreaking work with BDP.

March 10th is the anniversary of BDP opening its doors 37 years ago, a testimony to Maggie’s courage and vision. We look forward to celebrating her legacy with you.

What to expect

The event will last approximately an hour and will be full of memories, celebration and song. Maggie loved colour and music, and there will be both.

Please come as you are – there is no dress code, and all are welcome.

We will be joining together afterwards with free tea and cake in the on-site cafe.

If you have any specific accessibility needs, please let us know via the RSVP form below.

Want to be involved?

BDP’s Creative Communities groups, Rising Voices Choir and Bristol Recovery Orchestra, will be performing on the day. In reflection of Maggie’s values of inclusivity and creativity, we invite anyone who would like to be involved to join an open rehearsal from 11am at St. George’s that day. You will be joining the choir for an arrangement that will be performed during the event. All are welcome, and no experience is necessary!!
