Here is information about some of the organisations which run regular events in Henleaze.

Golden Hill Sports Ground

The Golden Hill Sports ground, which for many years has been the home of the YMCA Cricket and Football Clubs is managed by Golden Hill Sports Ltd, a registered charity. This follows the successful campaign for the acquisition of the field and pavilion to provide a lasting recreational facility within the community.

The pavilion has been refurbished and can be booked for parties, family celebrations and similar activities.  Extensive use is made of the sports field for cricket, football - adult and junior - with coaching and events organised in school holidays.
