500 things to do in bristol

Independent business updates and how you can help support

Last updated at 9pm on March 21, 2020

We have now launched IndieMap to help support Bristol independent businesses that are delivering in Bristol. This will be the main resource moving forward for Covid-19 business updates in Bristol.

It’s a really sad time at the moment. Our thoughts go out to those who have sadly passed away from Covid-19, and those they have left behind.

Our thoughts are also with the businesses affected so severely by the pandemic. It’s a really distressing time for hospitality, events and many other Bristol industries. We really don’t know what else to say.

These are trying times and we wish everyone around the UK and across the world, good health and financial security.

There are other ways that you can continue to support Bristol businesses.

You can use a delivery service such as Deliveroo or Uber Eats if you’re within radius.

You can also buy a gift card that you can use later. To facilitate this Wriggle have launched the brilliant ‘indie kittie’ scheme.

We always try our best to help independent businesses and venues get the custom they desperately need, and we will not stop.

Below is everything we currently know about independent businesses in Bristol and how you can continue to support them. It will be updated with information as we receive it.
