Bristol for Europe is a cross-party, collaborative and pro-EU political pressure group working to keep Bristol and the UK at the heart of Europe and to stop Brexit.

We are one of over 40 similar organisations in the UK affiliated to Britain for Europe.

In the 2017 General Election we played an important part in defeating a pro-Brexit MP in Bristol North West constituency and in the election of a strongly pro-EU MP.

We have held rallies, speaker events and through our weekly street stalls have recruited many thousands of supporters in Bristol.


Our Mission

Bristol for Europe is a grassroots, cross party group operating within Bristol, dedicated to remaining in the European Union, as we as a city voted 62% to remain.  We are playing our part in stopping Brexit.

We believe:

  • That young people and future generations of British citizens should have the best possible prospects for their education and their careers as citizens of a free and united Europe

  • That British society will continue to prosper from the close interaction and exchange of goods, ideas and culture that we have with the rest of the EU member states

  • That the EU embodies the values that we recognise as British values, including democracy, justice, tolerance, collaboration, human rights and the rule of law
