Find out more about who we are and what we do
We’re St George’s Bristol – a world-class, independent music venue in the heart of Bristol.
Our 580-seat concert hall was converted from a 200-year-old Georgian church, and is a truly special space where we welcome the finest performances from the world’s greatest artists. Our hall also has what Sir Simon Rattle called ‘the best acoustic for chamber music in Europe’ – meaning you can experience every note, riff, song, or symphony with perfect clarity (and often, no amplification at all!)
So you might know us for our music, but we have so much more to offer. As well as a space for music, we’re a space for performance, learning and ideas. We even offer a philosophy season, lots of events for children and families, lunchtime concerts, plus author talks and comedians. And our beautiful building has expanded too – we now have a contemporary pavilion-style extension housing our Café Bar and Glass Studio space.
In 2023, we’re 200 years old!
As we turn 200 years old this year, St George’s looks to the future – this is a turning point in our history, as we become a home for sound culture. We’re championing the universal language of music, celebrating your voices, exploring the boundless possibilities of ideas and spoken word, and making space where we can stop for a moment and listen to the world around us. We’ve specially commissioned artwork by Bristol-based artist Alex Lucas, inspired by community, music, and our environment, which gives a glimpse into this exciting future. Catch the artwork on the front cover of our 2023 brochure, on our website, and soon, on our building…
