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 it is greatly in the UK’s political, economic and social interests to remain part of the most progressive and democratic regional intergovernmental organisation in history

  • 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

    Put it to the People March (Train)


    Bath for Europe and Bristol for Europe are excited to collaborate for the first time on a train service to London.  

    Join your fellow protesters on a special rail service to the Put It To The People March. Board at either Bristol Temple Meads or Bath Spa station and chug along to London Paddington and back again.  Faster, more comfortable and more sociable than a coach.

    Approximate departure times: 8.30am from Bristol Temple Meads, 9am from Bath Spa. Return from London Paddington: 6pm.  Exact scheduling times to be confirmed by GWR. 

    Your ticket will only be valid on this service. You will need to be at the station at least 30 minutes before departure to check in and collect tickets. 

    Costs have been kept to a minimum and are based on a return journey. Unfortunately we will not be able to offer one-way tickets. Half price for students and children under 16.

    Prices are £32 + fees for adults and £16 + fees for students and under 16s.

    Able to pay more than the ticket price?  Please make a donation so that someone else can march in London with us. 

    The train will have toilets and a drinks trolley. We recommend that you also bring your own drinks and snacks for the journey.  There are up to four places for wheelchair users. If you have accessibility requirements, please email once you've purchased your ticket.


    If you've bought a ticket and can no longer make it, please let us know so that we can make your place available to someone else.  A full refund will be given if you cancel before 15th March.

    Please follow the link below to purchase tickets

    On 23rd June Bristol for Europe took two lively coachloads of people to join over 100,000 people for the March for a People's Vote in London.  ITV News West Country reports: (Video courtesy of ITV News West Country) Thank you to all who joined us in London in June! If you haven't already signed the People's Vote petition, it's here. And if you missed the march in June - or even if you didn't - here are two upcoming events you can get involved in: The South West Rally for a People's Vote, in Bristol on 11th August.  More information. The People's Vote March for the Future, in London on 20th October.  More information. We're expecting a huge turnout for the march on 20th October, and so we've booked twice as many coaches as we did in June.  Watch out for more details, including Eventbrite tickets - coming soon.

    Theresa has a plan. No it’s not a cunning one. Let’s have a People’s Vote!

    By Will Hull There’s got to be a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal now, hasn’t there? After months of fighting between the cabinet’s hard and soft Brexiteers, on Friday 7th July Theresa May got them to sign up to an actual plan (all three pages of it!) setting out what Brexit should look like. The following Monday, David Davis and Boris Johnson tried to torpedo the whole thing by resigning, but that doesn’t seem to have worked. So now there is a template for Brexit that the government says it will turn into a white paper and use to start negotiating with the EU.
