One of Bristol’s best loved venues, the Anson Rooms has played host to an impressive roster of high profile acts in its 50 year history, including David Bowie, The Smiths, Radiohead, Roni Size, Amy Winehouse and Ed Sheeran.

When it is not being used for gigs and public events, the Anson Rooms can be used as a large, versatile, blank canvas space for private events. Whether it be for a conference, wedding, exhibition or party, this is the perfect venue for you.

Benefiting from copious natural light, the Anson Rooms is flexible, accommodating various layouts. Days can be booked on a full day or half day rate and our current client list includes University of Bristol, BBC, OVO Energy, Bristol media and NUS.

The Event Space has an exciting after dark atmosphere and we’ve hosted countless award ceremonies, formals and gigs in recent years.

The Anson Rooms can be combined with other facilities we have to accommodate larger events.
