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.

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

    Grounded Coffee in Bristol, United Kingdom

    Door-knocking in St George

    Come and join us knocking on doors to speak to people and better understand sentiment in Bristol. This is an opportunity for us to speak to people that don't necessarily come and speak to us at stalls and a way for us to reach people who do not already agree with our cause.
    We will meet at Grounded Coffee on Church Road to agree the approach and walk to nearby streets in a team. Full training will be provided for all attending. You will not be expected to have long conversations with people, rather to simply fill in a short survey if people are willing so that we can build up a better picture of the range of views.

    ITV News West Country coverage of the People's Vote March

    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!

    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.
