Colston Hall Bristol

Opening times

Open - 01/01/2015 to 31/12/2015

Colston Hall

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.
