We have launched a city-wide marketing campaign to support local businesses as they safely reopen. This is a partnership initiative from Bristol City Centre BID, Visit Bristol and Broadmead BID, working with Business West and the One City Economy Board.

The campaign will reassure those returning to shop, work, study, visit or spend leisure time in the city centre that it remains a safe and welcoming place. As businesses safely reopen and confidence is restored, productivity will return to the local economy and our city will build back better.

There is an increasing number of organisations who are committed to amplifying the campaign.

We’re inviting businesses and organisations to be involved and have produced a campaign toolkit of elements that you can use within your own marketing. These will be downloadable files with guidelines on how best to use them.

As the campaign develops over the forthcoming weeks, more assets will be added for your use.

We look forward to working together as our city safely reopens.

Bristol invites you to the heart of the city

Bristol’s businesses and leaders have come together to launch #BristolTogether, a new initiative to safely reopen the city, kicking off with the creation of 374 giant hearts painted throughout its green spaces.

The Bristol City Centre BID team has been working through lockdown to create measures that will invite Bristolians and visitors to the city centre. 

Bringing people back together will help the city to build back stronger and faster supporting all businesses and especially those retailers, restaurants, bars and attractions who are safely re-opening. 

This week will see a team of artists from Upfest lending a hand to paint the first #BristolTogether installation with 224 hearts in Queen Square, followed by College Green and Castle Park later in the week. 

As the people of Bristol begin the return into their city centre workplaces, as well as its shared communal spaces of the city centre; the #BristolTogether campaign reflects that returning to work, study and play must be done within the safety of existing government regulations. The campaign is led by Bristol City Centre BID alongside Visit Bristol, Business West and Broadmead BID, in partnership with the One City Economy Board and Bristol City Council. 

The heart shapes are painted on the grass, each is approximately 3m wide with at least 2m distance between them, to encourage workers, shoppers and residents to protect vulnerable city visitors while also turning out to support businesses in the city. 

The project was also supported by the European Regional Development Fund through HM Government’s Reopening High Streets Safely Fund.
