Bristol has a vibrant music scene beating behind the doors of its many characterful venues. From musical legends in revered concert halls, to 25-piece Samba bands strumming under Banksy-covered walls, from indie hangouts to gigs afloat in old German boats, Bristol’s music venues cater for all tastes.
Colston Hall - a gleaming geometric jewel in Bristol’s music scene, plays host to big names in pop, rock, world and classical music, musical legends, stand-up comedy, light entertainment as well as local orchestras, schools and choirs. The city is also home to one of the country’s finest concert halls, decommissioned church, St George’s.
