Throughout this journey to a new name we have spoken to lots of people. We have undertaken significant consultation right across the city. We have involved our audiences, partners and communities from all across Bristol and have spoken to over 4,000 people about their hopes for the new venue and thoughts on our name.
We wanted to make sure a new name would come directly from the hearts and voices of our city. This consultation took the form of surveys, interviews, focus groups and community events.

On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon.
