Richard Clare
Social Programme & Buildings Coordinator

Having grown up in the nearby Cotswolds, I've known Bristol my whole life. However, after studying in Sheffield and Leeds, travelling, and working around Europe, I've only recently moved to Bristol and started at International House in March - I'm really looking forward to a busy and exciting summer social programme! We have summer fairs, free food festivals, and lots of trips across the country coming up very soon.

When I am not in school, I spend my time playing a lot of music, and I love travelling. But I mostly spend my free time getting to know Bristol better - the city has so much to offer, with its amazing music, film and arts scene and incredible restaurants all over the place! Being able to show students new things to do and see in Bristol is the best part of my job.
