Support the Transformation

We’re building a world-class music venue for Bristol.
Now is your moment to be a part of it.

The transformation of Bristol Beacon is vital to the cultural future of Bristol. We want to provide the city and the South West with the concert venue it deserves.

Many parts of the original Victorian building have not been updated since 1951 and aren’t fit for audiences or performers any more. To save the venue, we need to act now.

Our goal is to build one the best performance and music learning spaces in Europe – a modern, accessible, state-of-the-art venue that will attract the best artists and generate an extra £254m for Bristol’s economy.

We have already raised over £40 million. Now, we are asking for your help to make sure that the we are still entertaining Bristol in another 150 years. Can you help?
