Bristol New Music 2018 Highlights

A spine rattling installation, a string quartet in a cave, hypnotic electronica in an IMAX and a 51-piece orchestra spread across all levels of our foyer: Bristol New Music was an absolute blast!

We’d like to extend a huge thanks to all of the partner venues involved (St George’s Bristol, Arnolfini, Spike Island, University of Bristol and Qu Junktions) for helping us present such an inspiring, boundary pushing festival, and to all of you who came in your masses to experience new realms in contemporary music and art.

Welcome to
Bristol Beacon

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

Our new name is just the first step, it is about more than the sign above our door. Click below to find out more about how we’re changing, watch our name announcement, and discover how we want everyone to share in the joy of live music.
