The signs debuted throughout Bristol in May when Covid-19 restrictions began to ease and shoppers, diners, and workers were welcomed back to the city centre.

The initiative has been part of the #LoveBristol campaign that has been led by Bristol City Centre BID in conjunction with Bristol Together. The project is a year-long campaign to support retailers, hospitality, businesses, and the community in recovering from the pandemic.

The ‘Love Songs To The City’ signs have been designed to showcase lyrics from popular love songs in order to reflect the city’s bustling music scene, fun summer activities, and friendly community attitude.

The signs feature large pink lyrics atop silver discs that have been made by a collective of fabricators and Bristol artists. The public is encouraged to share and explore their favourite lyrics from the likes of Elton John, The Beatles, and Bob Marley.

This latest addition to our #LoveBristol campaign sends a message of joy and togetherness.

When speaking about the lyrics, head of Bristol City Centre BID, Vicky Lee says: “Bristol is a city of music and culture with worldwide recognition for our amazing restaurants, bars and venues.

“The restrictions of the last 18 months have seen many of these businesses hardest hit and many are fully opening for the first time since the first lockdown. This latest addition to our #LoveBristol campaign sends a message of joy and togetherness”

The lyrics have appeared in locations such as Broadmead from singers such as Madness, Tina Charles, and more

The initiative has seen live music from local buskers, along with installations such as a giant pink disco heart, and large handmade disco balls that have brightened up the streets in both the day and night.

The lyrics have lit up Bristol’s bustling nightlife as visitors have dined, danced, and socialised, helping to spread #LoveBristol’s messages of tolerance, safety, and respect for others.
