Bristol young professionals

Bristol Young Professionals is a social networking group for young people from a wide variety of professions. BYP hosts a drinks event every first Thursday of the month at a Bristol bar for relaxed networking and socialising.

You can find out when  and where the next monthly drinks is by looking at the 'next event' tab to the right and also joining our mailing list which will ensure you get timely reminders for upcoming drinks events.

In order to create an accessible and welcoming atmosphere at BYP events a free membership and open attendance policy operates.  BYP relies on sponsorship in order to fund its monthly drinks socials, we are very grateful to our corporate sponsors for their support.

We host special events including the reknowned BYP Summer Party which is attended by approximately 200 guests each year and previous flagship events have been held at some of Bristol’s premier venues.  A limited number of tickets are available for purchase in order to attend these events, through sponsorship these events are often heavily subsidised and are a great occasion for all attending. 

Where have we been recently?  We've been to Manos, Friska, Racks, Cosy Club to name but a few and we've got plenty more in the pipeline...!

BYP supports the work of the Quartet Foundation by encouraging members to donate to the BYP Fund.
