Sound of summer!

This year we brought the feeling of summer to our annual KS2 schools singing spectacular!

Audiences were transported to Africa and the Caribbean with a celebration of the voice as over 700 school children participated across two nights, as well as some of the city’s most promising young soloists performing songs from across the world.

BPM teamed up with University West of England as host venue with the concerts taking place in the Exhibition Hall while Colston Hall undergoes its multi-million transformation.

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.
