Amnesty fundraiser returns to Goldney Hall

For the first time since the pandemic the gates to Goldney Hall will open for the 39th Amnesty International Bristol garden party fundraiser.

There will be a packed line of up of live music and entertainment as well as homemade cakes and refreshments in the Orangery. With a raffle, a variety of stalls, and fun & games for children.

Sarah Forde, Amnesty International Bristol treasurer, said: ‘We are delighted to be hosting the annual Amnesty Bristol Goldney Garden Party again this year after the enforced two-year break [due to Covid]. This will be the 39th year we have run this event and we can’t wait!  

‘This is the main annual fundraising activity of the Amnesty International Bristol Group and is held in the beautiful Goldney Gardens, Clifton, part of the University of Bristol estate. It is a great opportunity to get together in lovely surroundings to enjoy tea & cakes and music and to show our support for the upholding of human rights around the world.’

The fundraiser offers attendees the chance to explore the stunning Goldney Hall gardens – including the eighteenth-century Grotto, decorated with rare shells, Bristol diamonds, minerals, and a rock pool overlooked by a river god and a lion’s den.

Gates open at 1pm and close at 5pm. Entry is £6 for adults including a raffle ticket and free for under-12s. All proceeds go to Amnesty International.
