For Community Groups, Charities, Educational Groups, Students and BCC Projects.

The vestibules are two former entrances located at either end of the city hall which Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol, opened up to showcase Bristol talent and give cultural and community groups unique environments to display their work.

The vestibules has hosted numerous exhibitions, performances, cinemas and pop up art markets and is a fantastic space in the heart of the city for groups to share their projects and ideas. Artspace Lifespace is working with Bristol City Council’s Arts Development Team to help them explore this alternative way of supporting Bristol’s arts and culture sector by opening up these distinctive spaces as exhibition space.

Booking / Hire Enquiries

The co-ordinator at The Vestibules can offer advice and guidance on using these spaces for creative activity and is available via email Tuesday to Thursday at thevestibules@artspace.uk.

We strongly advise a site visit before booking these spaces, both of which are listed, and require some additional planning to best be used as presentation spaces.

Residencies

We offer Residencies for both Park St and Deanery Rd Vestibule. The residency application is available on request at thevestibules@artspace.uk. This is a rolling opportunity and is open to charities, community groups, educational groups, artists and students. The residency periods normally run from Jan – March and July – October.

Opening up the Vestibules to local groups will provide much needed art space for local talent. By supporting the local arts scene in this way we can ensure that artists and other creatives continue to play a big role in developing Bristol’s growing culture economy.
