Colston Hall presents its second year of Terrace Sessions, and this year its a series of four free parties featuring the cream of Bristol’s party-organisers, all taking place on our sun-drenched terrace looking out over the city.
There’ll be a tasty BBQ at all events, weather permitting, and each session starts straight after work at 6pm, so head on over, crack open a beer and soak up some summer rays.
Terrace Session #1: Wanted Records Vs . We Like To Party

Wanted Records DJs
The House Party in a Club :We Like To Party join forces with Record Hoarders Wanted Records. Guests includes some of Bristol’s finest selectors and apparently some Mad Skills will be unleashed (What Ever they are!)
Cut and paste sounds and pictures.
The ever-eclectic DJ Moneyshot has won a mad decent following for his killer mixtapes, bubbling live sets, and party-smacking tunes. He’s an all round good egg, and jaw-droppingly nimble ‘pon the decks. His style is mad tight, and best described as “dancefloor beats, booties and bass with hip-hop skills,” if you ever find yourself in a situation needing it.
Terrace Session #2: Rise Records Vs. Howling Owl
Fri 14 Aug 2015, 18.00
Howling Owl DJs

Terrace Session #4: Disco Tropico
Fri 28 Aug 2015, 18.00
Special Guest TBA
Admin & Yanis
For the last instalment of our August roof terrace series, we have invited our resident Afro DJs – Bodywork – to bring the heat for a scorcher of a finale.
BODYWORK have been gaining serious gravitas on the Bristol disco scene with immersive gym themed club nights. For this extra special event, Bodywork are going back to their tribal roots for a Disco Tropico Party.
Alongside Bodywork come Admin + Yanis & Worm Disco Club. Together they will take you on a journey – from the Andes, through the Carribean, past the African planes and on to the Far East.
Sup ice cold drinks looking out over the Bristolian savanna. See the log-haired coyotes of St Werburgh’s in the distance, gaze in wonder at the silverbacks’ mating rituals on the waterfront. Marvel at the spirit of nature in a truly tropical environment.
