A Celebration Of Women In Music

A new venture between Jazz Festival producer Katya Gorrie and Bristol Beacon, the Tonic Sessions are a monthly music gathering celebrating Women in Music.

Women who compose, perform, arrange and play music in all genres with all people.

Taking place once a month on a Thursday at Bristol Beacon, we have created an inviting and relaxed space where you can come and have a glass of wine by candlelight, and enjoy some of the outstanding female artists in Bristol and beyond.

The evening will be beginning with a showcase of one of BIMM’s young female music students presenting a short set of their own new music at 19:30.

The headline act will then do a concert at 20:00

They will finish around 21:30 and we invite you to stay and have a drink, meet the artists and perhaps purchase their music to take home.
