M Shed

A cultural landmark right on harbourside, this former 50’s transit shed is part of the Bristol Museums and is home to a diverse collection of displays and exhibitions. The purpose-built event spaces offer a unique venue; industrial chic combined with state-of-the-art technology and the latest facilities, plus amazing views across the harbour and cityscape. A superb and innovatory venue for any conference, training session, press meeting, product launch, awards presentation, networking reception, gala dinner or executive meeting.

The Event Suite is on the top floor and has very flexible layout options. As a whole it seats 220 delegates in theatre style, 144 in cabaret layout, 240 for a glittering dinner or 300 for a drinks reception. The beauty of the Event Suite is that it divides into four smaller spaces covering all types of gatherings; the M-Suite holds 200 people in theatre style, 144 in cabaret setting, or 180 for a banquet. The Suite accommodates 100 guests in theatre style and 90 for dinner, whilst the Boardroom can host 50 in theatre style, 40 for dinner or 25 in U-shape. The Middle Suite has capacity for 40 executives in theatre style, or 15 in U-shape. Each space has a separate entrance, use of the reception room and cloak rooms – and access to the roof terrace.

On the first floor are 2 studios plus foyer areas. Studio 1 and 2 both seat 50 delegates in theatre style, 40 in cabaret layout, or 25 in U-shape; both Studios combined give enough space for 125 people in theatre style, and 64 in cabaret configuration. All event spaces have the latest audiovisual technology and state-of-the-art lighting which can be used to brilliant effect to add mood and colour to your function.

Event menus offer much variety and showcase the best in West Country produce and ingredients, with all diets catered for and menu tastings available. The venue offers some very reasonably priced dinner packages and will even tailor menus to suit your requirements.

With incredible views over the harbour and a stunning roof top terrace this venue is walking distance of the city centre, M Shed's event spaces offer excellent areas in which to learn, entertain and present for any occasion. With an on-site café, M Shed is a 20-minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station, and 5-10 minutes stroll from the city centre.
