The main auditorium and The Lantern at Colston Hall are closed throughout our transformation programme which began in June 2018.

This project will bring back to life an iconic building with a sympathetic modern touch and will deliver a venue fit for a leading European, national and regional centre for the performing arts.

To read about our new main auditorium, the development of The Lantern, the creation of a new performance space in our historic cellars and to view artistic impressions visit our Transformation pages.
