In Our Ears : The Lantern Edition
In case you haven’t heard already, The Lantern is Colston Hall’s ‘venue-within-a-venue’ (formerly known as Hall 2). We program an eclectic mix of Jazz, Blues, World and Folk as well as upcoming comedians and original theatre productions in the oldest space in Colston Hall, at only a 250-350 capacity.
We have some really interesting shows coming up over the next couple of months, and wanted to bring your attention to a selection of perhaps the lesser known artists coming to grace the intimate Lantern stage . This is the first installment of In Our Ears playlists from us, we hope you enjoy the selection.
