I am very pleased to announce that the Bristol Open 2015 will be on Saturday 6th of June.
Bristol is one of the best student cities, home to wonderful things such as Banksy, a GDP per capita higher than the national average and now, as always, the Bristol Open!
The Bristol Open is excellent prep for those attending the Vienna Euros. For those who are not going to Vienna, it will to a fab end to the debating year and a good excuse for a post-exam celebration; we are committed to making the Social our best ever!
