A creative space for music and ideas, St George’s Bristol is one of the country’s leading concert halls. A music venue in Bristol of international note, it boasts a superb acoustic and unique atmosphere which attracts the world’s best artists.
A full and vibrant programme, with over 250 events each year, makes St George’s an incredibly popular and important music venue for all genres.
St George’s is also a charity (registration number 295178) dedicated to promoting high quality music to diverse audiences. We do this by offering the best classical, jazz, blues, folk and world music as well as family concerts and talks, plus learning and participation programme.
We rely on ticket sales and venue hire to meet much of our annual running costs of £1 million, receiving public funding of just £35,000. Each year we are faced with a shortfall of around £300,000 which must be raised from donations. To find out how you can support St George’s, please visit Support Us.
