Transformation Highlights

We have closed the doors to our 1950s auditorium for the last time, and closed a long chapter in our history. Our multi-million-pound transformation is now underway and set to deliver a world-class concert hall for Bristol and beyond.

On this page we will post regular highlights and updates from our transformation programme including podcasts, films, photos and blogs that get under the skin of the largest capital arts programme ever to take place in the South West.

Scroll down to view our updates and read, watch and listen to how we’re progressing with our transformation project. 

A reminder of what we’re building…

– a venue that is the most accessible in the country for performers as well as     audiences

– 21st-century acoustic technology and design

– a new suite of education facilities to inspire the next generation

– permanent exhibitions which remember our heritage

– a new performance space in our long-underused Victorian cellars

Welcome to
Bristol Beacon

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.
