Built in 1823 in the Greek revival style, St George’s has a long history as a meeting place. From its original use as a place of worship, to its conversion to a concert hall, the stunning building and grounds now offer a unique conference venue in Bristol city centre. St George’s has elegant options for meetings, conferences, gala dinners, drinks receptions and other corporate events. Flexible spaces, including our Glass Studio in the stunning pavilion-style extension, can accommodate meetings as small as three, and up to 562 in the main hall. We have a range of breakout spaces available to compliment your main event booking.

St George’s is an inspired choice for companies looking to escape the humdrum of the boardroom or hotel conference room. We have an on-site catering team that can provide delicious, locally-sourced menus, speciality tea and coffee, and sumptuous desserts. All of this plus the use of the beautiful terraced lawns, whilst still being in the city centre, makes us the ideal choice for your event.
