Colston Hall Transformation project

Closed 24 Feb 2017

Opened 6 Feb 2017


Colston Hall is the South West’s biggest concert venue but is no longer fit for purpose for audiences or performers. This project will complete the transformation of Colston Hall and create one of the best arts and learning facilities in the country. 

The £48.8m project involves remodelling and upgrading the Main Hall, Lantern, cellars, and historic foyer spaces to create performance spaces of international quality and comfort. It will add a third venue in the cellars, build world class education rooms for young people to learn as well as making the venue fully accessible for audiences, performers and staff.

Why We Are Consulting

We’re looking for your views to help develop our proposals further. This is a pre-planning consultation to get feedback before the design is finalised and a planning application is submitted in May/June 2017.
