Come together with friends and family at Bristol Memory Walk, Lloyds Amphitheatre on 4 September 2021.
Challenge yourself to raise £160, or as much as you can, and make a real difference to people affected by dementia.
The Memory Walk team is here to support you every step of the way, so sign up today and together we’ll walk for a world without dementia.
There is no dedicated event parking, please use city centre parking and public transport. Lloyds Amphitheatre is 1.6km walk from Bristol Temple Meads. For drop-offs only, head to Canon’s Way.
Please consider the most sustainable method of transport, or car share where possible.
Memory Walk will start and finish in the event site in Lloyds Amphitheatre, which is located next to Canon’s Way on the north side of Bristol Harbour.
There are two Memory Walk routes – you choose which to walk on the day of the event. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change, and suitable footwear is recommended.
The shorter 1.5km walk is a gentle stroll around cathedral walk and Hannover Quay, which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages. This route is suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs with assistance.
The longer 4.5km walk is a little more challenging, and will take you around Bristol’s historic harbourside, enjoying views of the S.S. Great Britain and Cumberland Basin before returning across Pero’s Bridge. This route is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs due to the nature of the pathways, and some uneven terrain throughout the route.
Toilets on site
Accessible routes available
Event parking unavailable
The meeting point is on level, paved ground.
Both routes are on pavement and the short route is suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs with assistance. The long route has uneven and cobbled pathways.
There is no dedicated accessible parking.
Safety of all Memory Walk participants, volunteers and staff is our top priority. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation carefully and working hard to deliver amazing events, whilst following all legal guidance and precautions.
All our Memory Walk events hold the 'We’re Good To Go' industry standard, which means you can be reassured we have everything in place to keep you safe. Each event has been thoroughly risk-assessed and we've implemented a number of processes and measures from the guidance provided by the Government.
Memory Walk may look a little different this year, but it will still retain the amazing atmosphere that makes the event so special! Check out the below and our event safety guide for more information.
What to expect
- Multiple waves of walkers, meaning smaller numbers of participants in the event site and on the route, at any one time.
- Separate start and finish points for our routes.
- Reduced touchpoints to minimise contact between walkers and volunteers.
- Hand sanitiser at regular intervals within the event site.
- A site layout that still allows for social distancing between households of participants and volunteers.
- One way and queuing systems in specific areas of the event, such as our merchandise tent.
- Face coverings will be encouraged in any areas where 1m+ social distancing cannot be maintained.
