Bristol Beacon, run by Bristol Music Trust, is the South West’s principal music venue, and is the beating heart of culture in Bristol.

It has been at the heart of the region’s music making for 150 years and is internationally renowned for excellence and innovation. Annually, more than 250,000 people attend our international music, comedy, theatre, dance and visual arts events, and our education work reached over 40,000 children and young people of all backgrounds and abilities across the Greater Bristol area in the last year.

Bristol Music Trust’s Development team seeks to build strong relationships with companies, trusts and foundations, and individuals to support our artistic programme and our extensive outreach and work with schools.

Your support helps us transform lives, excite a new generation and provide extraordinary experiences for all.
