Introducing The Lantern

Pull up a chair, grab a drink at the bar and check out what’s on at The Lantern tonight…

Presenting an eclectic mix of jazz, blues, world and folk music plus original theatre and leftfield comedy, Colston Hall’s oldest and quirkiest space gives a new home to world-class performance in Bristol.

Discover groundbreaking artists like Agnes Obel, Ballaké Sissoko, Shappi Khorsandi and Alexei Sayle.

The Lantern is named after the striking Victorian glass atrium in the old foyer roof (also called a lantern) and celebrates the history of the Grade 2 listed building.

Welcome to
Bristol Beacon

On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon.

Our new name is just the first step, it is about more than the sign above our door. Click below to find out more about how we’re changing, watch our name announcement, and discover how we want everyone to share in the joy of live music.
