Beat the crowds with a Colston Hall membership

Become a member of Colston Hall and help us to continue to bring the best music, comedy and performing arts to Bristol. Get exclusive deals, great benefits and priority booking on your favourite shows and support the activities of Bristol Music Trust, the charity that runs Colston Hall.

It is thanks to our members’ support that we are developing an ever-stronger artistic profile at the Hall and last year welcomed almost 300,000 people through our doors, along with some of the best artists. What is more, your membership supports our outreach activities too. Bristol Music Trust now offers transformative music education, training and experiences to 40,000 young people every year, and our goal is to have a positive impact on every child in Bristol by 2020.

Transformation Offer

It is a time of big change here at the Hall, with our two main performance spaces closed to commence our ambitious Transformation. We want those who support us to really feel the benefit of being a member and, with this in mind, all memberships purchased will receive an additional 6 months for free. This will take your membership right into 2020, when you can look forward to the impending opening of brand new Hall and a truly exceptional programme of events to celebrate!

Please note, the Transformation Offer is for a limited period and Colston Hall reserves the right to withdraw this offer at our own discretion. 

Membership starts at £30 a year with benefits including:

  • Priority booking – snap up tickets for the most popular shows before they go on general release (click here for more details)*
  • A free Pocket Planner posted direct to your door
  • Invitations to special members-only events
  • E-Updates letting you know when your favourite artists are performing
  • A range of discounts at Colston Hall and with our partners (click here for more details)

*Priority booking may not be available on selected shows.
Maximum 4 tickets per member can be bought for popular shows.


Your membership will be active online immediately, and you will receive your membership card and information within 14 days of becoming a member.

You may also purchase a £30 Gift Membership Voucher which can be given to a friend or loved one to be redeemed at a later date.

Important information when purchasing Membership

Colston Hall turns 150 years old this year and, quite frankly, it looks its age, having had no major refurbishment in the last sixty years. So we are doing something about it and aim to turn our iconic building into something that we can all be proud of by 2020. For more information on the redevelopment see our Transformation pages.

To achieve our ambitious plans, Colston Hall and sister venue The Lantern will be closed from June 2018, reopening in 2020. During this time, Bristol Music Trust and Colston Hall will present an exciting programme of events in partner venues around the city. To keep up to date with our off-site programme please see Colston Hall Presents.

Your membership benefits will still be available to you during this period, including priority booking for our programme (T&Cs apply*), and discounts in the Colston Hall Bar and Kitchen and other partners.

Please be aware, by purchasing a membership from May 2017, you acknowledge that Colston Hall and The Lantern venues will be closed for at least a portion of the duration of your membership. Membership is non-refundable, unfortunately we are unable to offer pro-rota refunds.
