The Vestibules are two former entrances located at either end of City Hall. The venue, opened by Marvin Rees (Mayor of Bristol), aims to showcase Bristol talent and give cultural and community groups unique environments to display work.

If you’re interested in hiring The Vestibules, have a look at our How To Use The Vestibules guide.

The Vestibules have 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.

I am delighted to work in partnership with Artspace Lifespace in this new venture and look forward to welcoming individuals and groups to showcase their work. I hope it will provide meaningful opportunities for aspiring and accomplished artists alike

Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees
