This scheme will become Bristol's new musical hub. We devised a phased programme for works: phase one was completed in 2009 and the design for phase two is currently underway. The first phase involved demolishing part of the site to deliver a new foyer building, with all of the modern facilities necessary for an audience of 2,500 people. At its centre is an open informal performance space, whilst a range of flexible spaces also support the hall’s education, outreach and conference programmes.
Phase two involves sensitively restoring the listed building and Victorian second hall, refurbishing the back stage areas and creating new spaces for learning and creativity. The atmospheric cellars beneath the main hall will also be carefully converted to provide studios for learning and creativity, and an underground venue will extend the hall’s diverse musical reach even further.
