Building a Sound Future will secure St George’s future as a world class performance venue, preserving, extending and enhancing our central Bristol home and transforming the visitor experience. A key feature of the development is a bold new extension built within the surrounding garden of our main building, designed by award winning architects Patel Taylor.
KEY FEATURES OF OUR PLANS INCLUDE: - Creating new and inviting entrances - Enabling full and unhindered access to the hall for the first time - A strikingly-designed new garden-facing cafe/bar - New foyer, box office and flexible multi-purpose spaces - Improved backstage facilities for artists and staff - New workshop and education spaces - New gallery space for permanent and visiting exhibitions - Greatly improved cloakroom and toilet provision - Restoration and opening up of the 19th century gardens.
We have now raised £4.59 million of our £5.5 million target and planning permission has been granted. Building works are now in final preperation, with completion scheduled for autumn 2017.
