Queens Square has been scheduled as the initial meeting point, where participants will gather at 6.30 pm before setting off for the march at 7 pm.

From here, everyone taking part will walk towards the Richmond Building, in which participants are invited to meet a variety of speakers and stallholders from a range of local organisations.

The march is more relevant than ever given that a Freedom of Information Request provided by Avon and Somerset Police revealed that there were 49 reported cases on sexual assault in the Bristol area in January 2018 alone.

With participation from previous years amounting to over 500 people, Reclaim the Night is set to be an empowering night showcasing the exceptional work from the women of Bristol.

Sally Patterson, Equality, Liberation and Access Officer for Bristol SU said: 'Sexual violence is still one of the biggest threats to students on campus. This year we are working harder than ever to tackle it at the University of Bristol.'

'Until we have eradicated sexual violence from our society, we will continue to fight. Reclaim the Night allows our students to come together with the local community, standing shoulder to shoulder with all survivors of sexual violence.'
