Bristol Museum & Art Gallery

Bristol Museum & Art Gallery

Culture and splendour combine at this impressive and unique venue; a magnificent backdrop to any business meeting or event - perfect for awards ceremonies, gala dinners, drinks receptions, product launches, exhibitions, conferences and exhibitions alike. Ideal for fashion shoots and shows, and for filming.

Think Edwardian Baroque architecture; soaring vaulted glass ceilings, arched balconies, big stone pillars, and you’re there. At the front of the building, Winterstoke Hall has a grand entrance foyer, and you look up to see the famous Bristol Boxkite flying above you – what a talking point! The Wills Hall, the rear hall, is a real showstopper with a marble floor, grand sweeping staircases and period chandeliers – just imagine a sparkling dinner or sociable drinks reception for 250 guests in such a beautiful setting! Combined, these two glorious halls accommodate 400 people for a reception, or 250 for a banquet or conference – and why not treat your guests to a private gallery viewing, perhaps the fascinating Egypt Gallery?

Event menus are varied and can be tailored to your specific requirements; all dishes are brought to you from innovative chefs, who use the freshest locally sourced seasonal produce, whether its canapes for a champagne reception, or a five-course lavish dinner. The venue has several reasonably priced packages for dinners and conferences. You’ll have complimentary high speed wifi, up-to-the-minute audiovisual technology and a knowledgeable team at hand to ensure that all runs smoothly.

Bristol Museum & Art Gallery can be found on Queens Road, 2 miles from the city centre. Clifton Down train station is a 15-minute stroll away and Bristol Temple Meads within half an hour’s walk.
