We’re celebrating the re-opening of Bristol Beacon with a two-day festival party bursting with the full spectrum of creativity that Bristol has to offer, and you’re invited to help us warm up.

At The Housewarming, every corner of Bristol Beacon – from the terrace to our brand new Cellars and our renewed concert hall spaces – will come alive with performances of every kind, to celebrate its rebirth with light, sound and of course, music.

Throughout the celebration we want to showcase the entire breadth of Bristol’s creative community, so here’s the deal: we’ll set the stage, but then it’s over to you!

Yes, you can perform at The Housewarming, and get the party going. Are you a solo musician, or part of a group? Maybe you’re a family of singers, or poetry or dance is your thing. Get in touch and tell us what you want to do! We can’t wait to find out what you’ve got in mind.

Like all good housewarming parties, everyone is welcome: friends and neighbours, old and new. The door is open, so come along – help us throw one massive Bristol party to remember.
