Music Centres

Bristol Plays Music provides a substantial range of opportunities to play and perform in ensembles at music centres across Bristol. At BPM’s music centres you can take part in over 17 ensembles and choirs every week. We offer affordable and accessible prices starting at £30.00 for a double term and our Music Centre Passport enables children to attend multiple activities.

BPM has a great reputation for providing high quality instrumental music lessons and a range of ensembles and choirs to schools and at music centres throughout the city. We now offer more opportunities than ever to learn, play and perform.

We’re changing

On Wednesday 23 September 2020 Colston Hall changed its name to Bristol Beacon, and this means we’re changing too.

Bristol Plays Music is run by Bristol Music Trust, the charity that also runs the venue formerly known as Colston Hall. These two organisations will soon unite under one name: Bristol Beacon.

Click below to find out more about how we’re changing, watch our name announcement, and discover how we want everyone to share in the joy of live music.
