Press release issued 8 October 2013
The Anson Rooms, one of Bristol’s best-loved music venues, is reopening with a bang next week after a major refurbishment.
Now, after undergoing a full refurbishment and redesign, the venue is preparing to welcome back live music for the first time in over a year when its autumn line-up kicks off with Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Wit on Monday [14 October].
Electro-pop threesome Chvrches perform on 15 October, before ethereal London Grammar take to the stage on 20 October for their sell-out gig.
The Anson Rooms are now a multipurpose space for performance and live music, ready to host the cutting-edge contemporary music which has been the foundation of its reputation, welcoming thousands of music-loving Bristolians and students over the past four decades.
Its transformation is part of the on-going £25million refurbishment of the Richmond Building, home to the University of Bristol Students’ Union (UBU) on Richmond Road.
