Discovery Day – Performances

Building a sustainable concert hall

To finish off your Discovery Day, we’ve joined forces with artspace lifespace’s Futur Ville programme, to present Celebrate Bristol, a FREE evening of music and reflection on what brings us together as Bristolians and to share our communal love for the city.

Curated by artist and historian Dr Edson Burton and featuring performances from Bristol legend DJ Dad, Edson Burton and Priscilla Andersohn, who will bring her joyous jam to the foyer stage.

This event is curated by Edson Burton and is a commission from artspace lifespace’s Futur Ville programme in partnership with Colston Hall. Futur Ville is supported by funding from Arts Council England.
