Demolition and enabling works start at Concert Hall, Bristol

Demolition and enabling works have started at Concert Hall in Bristol. We are removing the 1951 main auditorium interior and single deep balcony to reveal the much-altered original Victorian walls. This makes way for our new main hall with two shallower balconies to create sound quality that will rival the best UK and international concert halls. We will also oversee the fit out of the main hall, restored second hall and a cellar venue.

The original splendour of the former entrance areas is also being gradually revealed and will become a stunning restaurant – adding further to the visitor experience.

Work started in January of this year and is due to complete Autumn 2021.
