Bristol venue Colston Hall is turning 150 years old, and the historic venue has announced its party plans.
The venue will be holding a competition all of Friday to celebrate the launch of its birthday bash, hiding special prize tickets all over Bristol. Stay tuned into Colston Halls social media to get clues to the tickets location, as there will only be 21 available.
Amongst these, there will be three different types of ticket. The first is a golden ticket, which will give the finder a free pass to any gig at Colston Hall that they’d like between 1 September 2017 and 31 December 2017.
The second, which is a special commemorative ticket that features a legendary act that has played at the Hall on it, gives the same prize as a golden ticket, plus a gift pack of Colston Hall celebration ale.
The third ticket, which there is only one of, is a special platinum ticket, and will allow one lucky hunter to go to as many gigs at Colston Hall as they want between 1 September 2017 and 31 December 2017 PLUS a gift pack of Colston Hall celebration ale. All of the tickets will give holders guaranteed entry to the venue’s 150th Birthday Bash.
And speaking of the 150th Birthday Bash, Colston Hall has announced a free event on 20th September featuring a whole host of past Colston Hall performers, including The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, The Bruce / Ilett Big Band, Bristol Ensemble, Bristol Choral Society, Wanted Records’ DJ John Stapleton and more. The event will be on a first-come-first-serve basis, so get down early to make sure you get in.
As if that wasn’t enough partying for you, there will also be a Bristol music takeover on 7th October, with This Is The Kit, ThisIsDA and current Bristol Live cover stars Oro Swimming Hour all playing. Colston Hall says that there will be bands playing throughout the day across various locations in the venue followed by a Bristol DJs night in the evening. Tickets for the event will go on sale on Friday.
