The most important way of getting involved with the Bristol Cable is to become a member. This gives you a share of Cable ownership, and voting rights on key decisions. Also, if you like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter, you can stay up to date with our latest stories.

There are lots of other ways you can be involved.

Would like to help with content, fund-raising, membership, distribution or other Cable activities?

Getting involved in the Bristol Cable is easy – let us know how you want to participate through this quick form and we’ll take it from there.

You can also come along to a quick getting involved session, at 6.30pm on the first Monday of the month, just before our monthly members meeting.
