BBC Music Day 2018

A nationwide celebration of music

Now in its fourth year, BBC Music Day is an annual celebration of the power of music to change lives. This pan-BBC initiative features live music events and performances across the UK involving famous musicians, choirs and local community music groups.

Colston Hall has been proud to have hosted BBC Music Day celebrations every year since its inception, and is thrilled to be a part of the day for another year. At Colston Hall, choirs will be raising the roof in song as they perform throughout the day. Drop in any time throughout the afternoon and evening to hear a range of music including songs by Leonard Cohen, Elton John, Duke Ellington, as well as traditional spirituals, all the way to pop classics by Gary Barlow and Taylor Swift.
