The Bristol Mixer

Picture this... A stroll around the beautiful zoo gardens at sunset, cocktail in hand, followed by delicious dining, and brilliant Bristol music. 

Sounds like your type of night? Then The Bristol Mixer is for you!

Since April 2017, the Sunrise Foundation has funded work for Changes Bristol and other local charities (KIDS and Caring in Bristol) and this event is to celebrate the work achieved in mental health, homelessness and disability in our city.

We would love to invite you along to Bristol Zoo on Friday 17th May to celebrate with us.

On arrival, you will be welcomed with a complimentary drink whilst enjoying the sounds of local musician, Sam Eason. You are welcome to have a stroll around the zoo gardens where you have exclusive access.

We will then take you upstairs into the beautiful Clifton Pavilion to begin your evening, starting with a fun West Country themed quiz hosted by ‘Martin Mucklowe’ (from Bafta award winning BBC comedy ‘This Country’) and local artist Jenny Urquhart. After finishing a delicious three course dinner, the auction begins; with some fabulous prizes up for grabs.

When the auction draws to a close, we will make our way back downstairs to dance the night away to Two Step Disco DJs, guaranteed to get you into the swing of things!

Beautifully crafted spring cocktails will be on offer throughout the evening.

There will also be a silent auction, with opportunities to bid on some great prizes throughout the night.

All money raised from this event will be split between the three local charities, so you know that whilst enjoying the evening, your money will help some of Bristol’s most vulnerable communities.
