The Children's University

Bristol & South Gloucestershire Children’s University is proud to offer Bristol Bright Night as a Learning Destination.  The Children's University TM is an international charity that aims to promote social mobility by providing high quality, exciting and innovative learning activities and experiences outside normal school hours to children aged 5 to 14 and their families by engaging the wider communities as learning partners in the realisation of this. At the heart of its work is the ambition to raise aspirations, boost achievement and foster a love of learning, so that young people can make the most of their abilities and interests. Bristol Bright Night provides a perfect Learning Destination to meet the overarching aims of Children’s University.
