Bristol was one of the first UK cities to be awarded Purple Flag status in 2010 and is still a proud Purple Flag bearer today in recognition of its work towards a more vibrant, welcoming, diverse and safer nightlife.

Purple Flag assesses qualities such as cleanliness, safety, diversity, accessibility and partnership working, and it gives positive reassurance to those people planning a night out in the city. We’re able to retain this annual accreditation from the Association of Town and City Management thanks to a dedicated partnership of organisations, coordinated by Bristol City Centre BID, all working together to achieve the national standards of excellence for managing an evening and night-time economy.


We’re proud that our city centre has achieved national recognition for providing a safer, more welcoming night out for all
