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 in Bristol for over one hundred years.  We offer a varied programme of events throughout the year with talks, films, music and occasionally outside visits.  The Club is also open for lunch from Wednesday to Friday.  Why not relax with a drink in our cosy bar or enjoy a cup of fair trade coffee.  Members are very welcome to bring guests.

ROOM HIRE

The events room and bar are available for hire by outside organisations or for private events.  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.

*Members receive discounted rates on room hire.

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