Welcome to Bristol Beacon. A symbol of hope and community. A focal point for music in the city. A gathering space, illuminating the way ahead. A place of welcome, warmth and light. An open invitation to the city for everyone to come and share in the joy of live music.

Our purpose is to create unity and joy through live music. We believe in the power of music to break down barriers and cross boundaries, and we celebrate this in everything we do.

Bristol beacon is run by Bristol Music Trust. Launched in 2011, Bristol Music Trust is an independent organisation and registered charity (no. 1140898) created to develop Bristol Beacon’s artistic programme and promote music and music making in the city through Bristol Plays Music.

Following the renaming of Colston Hall to Bristol Beacon in September 2020, we are working to unify the performance and education aspects of our work under one name: Bristol Beacon, and developing a new strategic vision for the organisation.

We are in a period of major change for the Trust since our transformation project began in June 2018 to deliver a c.£50 million redevelopment of our venue. This will see a complete refurbishment of our two main spaces and the creation of a new venue and music education centre in the cellars.
