Welcome to Bristol Commonwealth Society

People from the Commonwealth who live in Bristol have much to share and exchange: stories, friendship and a common cause.

Bristol Commonwealth Society welcomes as its members people from the Commonwealth and everyone who has an interest in this global organisation.

We aim:

  • To raise awareness of the Commonwealth’s 53 nations, their people, their cultures and their histories.
  • To support young people who want to experience what the Commonwealth has to offer and contribute to its future.
  • To promote trade and industry by encouraging Bristol businesses to develop links and partnerships with member countries.

The Society is based in a Grade II Victorian villa in Clifton.  Its clubrooms are used by members for formal and informal gatherings.  There is a regular programme of events including talks, films and music.  Members meet regularly to enjoy lunch and dinner or a relaxing drink in the bar.

Our main meeting room and bar are available for hire by outside organisations and for private events.  A full on-site catering service can be provided.  Off road parking is available.

Bristol Commonwealth Society is a charity.  We support a range of international initiatives aimed particularly at young people.
