Work With Us

Launched in May 2011 the Bristol Music Trust is a new and exciting independent charity with two distinct aims.

The first is to manage the operations of Colston Hall, Bristol’s largest concert venue, where people have been enjoying music since 1867; developing a diverse musical programme, leading a major capital refurbishment programme and securing its commercial success.The Hall presents a wonderful opportunity to build a diverse Music & Arts Centre; comprising a traditional concert hall, a smaller intimate hall and an inspiring newly built foyer.

The second aim is to drive forward music across Bristol; working in partnership with city wide organisations; leading on musical education, commissioning new works, supporting local musicians, and promoting music across all communities to build on the vibrant talent already in the city.

Much more, we want the Bristol music scene to stand out with its own unique culture and internationally renowned reputation.

Bristol Music Trust’s vision is to put music at the heart of Bristol life, and to lead a strategic, holistic, citywide approach to promoting music so that it flourishes through performance, composition, participation and education.

Work experience/student placements  - please note that we don’t currently have the capacity for a work experience/student placement programme, and whilst this may change in the future, we are not currently taking enquiries around work experience or student placements.
