Welcome to the Bristol Bot Builders website!

We’re a community of robot combat builders in the South West of UK (like Robot Wars & Battlebots on TV!). We host events every month or so where everyone is welcome to come spectate or fight robots. A lot of our events are a relaxed afternoon pub brewery affair and then a few times a year we host competitive full day national competitions, all in Bristol or nearby.

Our main place for chatting robots is our facebook group or forum come join us there.

Smaller bots than Robot Wars & Battlebots?

We do events in the ant, beetle & feather weight classes – see below. This is because they’re cheaper and have can have more accessible building techniques to people new to robot combat than the heavyweights you see on TV.

How do I build a Robot?

We’ve made some build guides with UK rules & recommended parts to help get you started.

We run a shop with great parts to help you build a bot.

There’s a lot to take in – come chat in our facebook group or forum or talk to us at one of our events.

About BBB

We’re a community of combat robot builders in South-West UK that run regular Feather, Beetle & Ant events. The group was founded in April 2018 to offer pub robot fighting, continuing the legacy of Bristol university beer & bots events, starting back in December 2014. This quickly grew to multiple events across weightclasses and as of 2023, BBB have ran over thirty robot combat events in its five years!

The BBB Crew: Craig, Gareth & Joe

As BBB, we aim to provide fun robot combat events for anyone in the South West of England area and beyond! Come to one of our events and see what we’re about. We also list all UK & EU Robot Combat events we know of on the UK/EU Events page.
