Life in Bristol goes on beyond daylight hours, with many of us working, socialising and enjoying the city at night. And yet we know that being out at night can induce anxiety for many people.
Make a commitment to safety and help make Bristol a place where everyone feels comfortable and free from harassment or discrimination.
Venues across Bristol have signed up to support the city-wide partnership against drink spiking, empowering our after-dark workforce with the tools and training to stand against the perpetrators of drink spiking. Bristol Nights is enhancing safety procedures across the city and working together with the Police to catch those intent on tampering with drinks.Stop spiking campaign
