Ashton Gate Stadium to be lit purple

Ashton Gate Stadium will be lit up purple tonight to mark the tragic death in Minneapolis of George Floyd and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Alongside other landmarks across Bristol and the country in a show of solidarity, the stadium will be lit purple between 8pm-11pm.

Asher Craig, Deputy Mayor with responsibility for Communities, Equalities and Public Health, said: “As a city we stand against racism and inequality and are joining other cities to show our unity with the needless death of George Floyd.

“We are working hard to build mixed communities that look out for each other, and work together to make sure every child growing up in Bristol has the same life chances as the next. Every person in the city can play a role in this and in tackling injustice.”
