We recognise the severe levels of loneliness and isolation felt amongst many older people in our communities and we know through research that the creative arts can help meet major challenges facing health and social care: ageing, long term conditions, loneliness and mental health.
We are committed to supporting older people across Bristol to access creative activity and present live concerts and workshops in sheltered accommodation; host social gatherings and creative workshops at the hall; and offer adults with dementia and their carers, opportunities to come together regularly for singing, socials and creative activity.
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.
