Some kind words from our clients.

  • Working with  the Colston Hall team to create the Aardman 40th Birthday Celebration party was a really fun and positive experience. The teams ‘calm, can do’ approach to the whole event and all the challenges that we threw at them made for the exciting, vibrant party that we all dreamed of.

    The feedback that we have received about the event and the venue has all been extremely positive. We would highly recommend the foyers, restaurants and bars for a party where you hope to achieve different ambiances within one party. The staff on the night covered everything that was needed, so we could focus on the guests and party – they were all great, polite and really helpful.

    We would happily work with the team again and many people have suggested we should have a party like this every year.

  • Thank you to all the staff at Colston Hall, we were made very welcome and the service we received from booking, all the way through to the event was great. The space and the catering were exactly what we were looking for and we would definitely use this space again for future events.

  • The Colston Hall team was incredibly helpful from start to finish and made the whole process very quick and easy. The on-site support during the event was excellent and much appreciated. We were very happy with the venue and our guests loved the terrace – particularly in the sunshine! Would definitely book the venue again.

  • The First Thursday Club is a networking club that meets every first Thursday of the month at the Colston Hall in Bristol. We found as the Club was expanding we required a larger venue and for the last 7 years have been holding our meeting on the third floor of the Colston Hall.  This venue has proved to be such a success with all members for its locality, spaciousness, bright & airy room and balcony with good views all round. The food is very plentiful and delicious with a good selection for all to choose. Staff are always very helpful and available when needed.  Well done to you al.

  • Colston Hall was the obvious venue choice for us as we commenced planning to deliver the Closing Ceremony for Bristol 2015, European Green Capital.  The entire team at Colston were nothing but supportive in bringing our plans to fruition.  Not only do they understand how to deliver the technical production elements of a show, but they also understand the importance of giving the audience a complete experience, from the minute they walk  into the venue, to taking their seats, having a drink at the bar and leaving for home.  I cannot thank them enough for their efforts in making this important event for the city such a success.
