Bristol Beacon Opening

Bristol Beacon will reopen on Thursday 30 November 2023

The Bristol Beacon website has the latest news on the transformation and reopening of what used to be the Colston Hall. We understand that the Britton Organ will not be heard until early 2024, due to the critical and time-consuming process of voicing the Harrison & Harrison instrument to suit the revised acoustic of the hall.


The website has more photos like this of the work in progress, with video guided tours and drone fly-throughs. Plus –

  • News of the first acts returning to the venue in a series of reopening concerts
  • You can sign-up to receive notifications of future programme announcements
  • You can make suggestions for the opening parties, and – MOST IMPORTANTLY
  • You can complete a comprehensive audience survey online, in which you can have your say about future programmes, how events should be publicised, how you like the new name, how the venue will operate etc.

You are urged to complete this survey to make sure that those of us who appreciate classical, organ, choral and orchestral music will have their voices heard.
