Colston Hall

About

The Colston Hall is Bristol's largest concert hall, presenting concerts and entertainment by major names in pop and rock music, classical music, stand up comedy and light entertainment, as well as local choirs, orchestras and schools.

In 2009 the Colston Hall reopened following major rennovation which saw a new £20 million foyer added to the hall, creating an imposing and iconic building that befits the many fantastic performers who play here. The foyer holds two café bars and interval bars, a 3rd-floor roof terrace, education facilities, plus disabled access to all floors.

The people of Bristol have been enjoying music at Colston Hall for almost 140 years. In 2012 alone, the Colston Hall hosted music from the likes of the Scissor Sisters, Katie Melua, Jools Holland and Ronan Keeting, comedy from Jimmy Carr, Alan Davies and Joan Rivers, as well as being a key player in many of Bristol's wider events including the Bristol Harbour Festival, Big Green Week and Doors Open Day.

For a comprehensive list of all the events at Colston Hall, please visit their website or search for events in our own listings.

Eating and Drinking

Whether you're seeing a show, doing a spot of shopping, or need some after work entertainment, Colston Hall has a range of options when it comes to eating and drinking.

Colston St. Bar & Kitchen is on the lower ground floor. This is a warm, inviting and stylish haven to meet with friends before a concert. Their food menu is available from 11.30am – 9pm, and boasts a choice of freshly made soups, stews and burgers.

Inspired by craft beer bars in the US, Beerd boasts an ever-changing range of ales that will satisfy both the hops novice and the bona fide beer geek. Hungry concert goers can tuck into freshly made, hand-crafted Neapolitan-style pizzas with a choice of only the finest sourced toppings. For a quick nibble, premium bar snacks are well matched to the global beer on offer.

Colston Hall's stalls and terrace bars open 60 minutes before shows begin and remain open during and after the show. Serving a range of draught and bottled beers, cider, organic wines and spirits and fairtrade tea and coffee in comfortable surroundings. The highlight is the terrace bar with spectacular views across the city.
