Colston Hall supports Independent Venue Week and Music Venue Trust’s Fightback campaign
Over the next few weeks, Colston Hall is very pleased to be supporting Independent Venue Week (28 Jan – 3 Feb) and the Music Venue Trust’s Fightback campaign (4 Feb – 18 Feb) – raising awareness of the UK’s grassroots music venues and ensuring they can survive and thrive.
Through our Colston Hall Presents programme, we are bringing two sold out gigs to The Louisiana as part of Independent Venue Week – John Paul White on Wed 30 Jan and The Howl and the Hum on Fri 1 Feb.
What’s more, as part of the Music Venue Trust’s Fightback campaign over the following two weeks, we are presenting gigs in our foyer and across the city including:
05/02/2019 – Wardrobe Theatre – Chance McCoy + Eli West
06/02/2019 – Colston Hall – Masayoshi Fujita
10/02/2019 – O2 Academy – The Dead South
13/02/2019 – Colston Hall – Poppy Ackroyd
13/02/2019 – The Louisiana – Cedric Burnside
15/02/2019 – The Fiddlers – Dorian Concept
17/02/2019 – Folk House – Angelo De Augustine
Fightback Bristol – 4 Feb – 18 Feb
Fightback Bristol is a new spring campaign that encourages music fans to visit their local grassroots music venue and promote Bristol’s emerging and existing musical talent.
The campaign raises money for Music Venue Trust’s emergency response service which last year helped halt the closure of 41 music venues across the country.
Colston Hall is delighted to support by programming gigs in partner venues through our Colston Hall Presents programme, and for the gigs taking place at the Hall we will be selling Fightback Lager, with proceeds going to Music Venue Trust.
So if you love live music, get out and show your love by supporting the city’s grassroots music venues and discover your new favourite artist.
