Constructed between 1821 and 1823, St George's Bristol originally functioned as a Commissioner's Church, and is the city's earliest example of the Greek Revival style.
As you would expect, the building is steeped in history. The church narrowly survived a German incendiary bomb during the Second World War, and a star-shaped light in the ceiling marks the point where it was dropped but miraculously failed to explode!
After serving as a church for 150 years, St George's was converted for concert use 40 years ago, and the venue's outstanding acoustics, enchanting atmosphere, and exceptional staff have earned it a reputation as one of the country's finest concert halls.
In 2017-2018, St George's Bristol underwent a multi-million pound refurbishment, including a beautiful new pavilion-style extension housing the new Café Bar and studio space. It is now an elegant, versatile and unique destination for bespoke wedding receptions.
As a registered charity, every wedding reception helps to support this beautiful building and music venue, as well as the organisation's charitable aims. The extension foyer features an exquisite glass sculpture of a soundwave designed by artist Luke Jerram.
