Give a home to a Colston Hall seat

Back in June 2017 we closed the doors to our 1950s auditorium for the last time in order to begin our £48.8 million transformation. Since then we’ve been hard at work preparing the Hall for the building work to start by removing our antique Harrison & Harrison organ and dismantling the thousands of seats.

We were delighted to be able to donate the majority of the foldable seats to Trinity Centre where they will have a home and future life.

But…we still have some to give away! If you would like to own a piece of Colston Hall’s history, or are looking furnish your front room with a new suite of furniture, know a community hall in need of an extra seat or two, or just love that classic maroon design then please get in touch.

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.
