A VERY WARM WELCOME TO THE BRISTOL COMMONWEALTH SOCIETY

As part of an influential and global organisation we aim:

  • To raise awareness of the Commonwealth’s 52 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.

Did you know that a third of the world’s population live in member nations, and 6 out of 10 of those people are under the age of 30 years old!

ABOUT US

Based in a Grade II listed villa in the heart of Clifton we have been a part of Bristol’s history for over one hundred years.  We offer a varied programme of events throughout the year with talks, films, music and occasionally outside visits.  The comfortable Club Room and bar is open for lunch from Wednesday to Friday and for Sunday lunch*.  Members are very welcome to bring guests.

(*Please check website for details).

ROOM HIRE

The events room and bar are available for private or corporate hire.  Our on-site catering team are happy to tailor a package to suit your requirements and budget.  Parking is available in our adjoining car park and is included in the hire cost.  There is free Wi-Fi throughout and our modern multi media facility is ideal for PowerPoint presentations, films or music.

*Members receive discounted rates on room hire.

Bristol Commonwealth Society is a registered charity.  We support a range of international and local initiatives.
