Bristol businesses prepare for a bumper day as 25,000 students and parents head to city for open day

Bristol businesses are preparing for a bumper Saturday this weekend (September 9) as 25,000 prospective students and their families head to the city for the final University of Bristol undergraduate open day of the year.

Prospective students and their families will get a taste of the University’s courses and student life.

For many of the young people – and their families too – it will be their first experience of Bristol, and shops and restaurants in Clifton are preparing to welcome the extra footfall.

Prof Tansy Jessop, pro vice-chancellor for education and students, said: “We love the buzz in Bristol during open days and can’t wait to once more showcase the University and the city.

“As with our two previous open days earlier this year, Saturday will be a busier day than usual for local businesses.”
