Bristol Nights is a partnership project from Bristol City Council. Our purpose is to support the city at night, and everyone who works from 6pm-6am.
The heart of Bristol Nights is collaboration. We work with nightlife stakeholders across the city to help Bristol flourish after dark.
The city doesn’t stop at 6 o’clock. Nightlife is the heart and soul of our community. It's where we come together to eat, dance, laugh and spend time with our friends and family.
Bristol’s night time economy incorporates all businesses who operate between 6pm-6am. Over 116,000 people work at night in Bristol, this is 41% of the city's jobs.
Bristol Nights is dedicated to advocating for the night through coordinated, practical, city-wide solutions.
We are proud to champion essential issues which create better jobs, safer spaces, and wellbeing support for night workers. Our focus is on practical advice, talent development and training.
Bristol Nights believe that nightlife is a force for good. We are vibe creators, storytellers, a space to break bread and the seedbed of music innovation. We celebrate the talent, diversity, creativity, and joy of Bristol after dark.
