First Bus x Bristol Beacon Partnership

We're thrilled to be working the Bristol Beacon, to encourage sustainable travel to their venue. 

A key part of the transformation of Bristol Beacon is to use it as an opportunity to become a more sustainable organisation. We know there are many reasons that our visitors aren’t always able to travel here sustainably, including cost, so it’s fantastic to be able to take these steps that will remove some of the barriers and make it easier for people to travel by bus.”

Transformation of Bristol Beacon

Over the last 5 years, Bristol Beacon has undergone a massive transformation, with extensive renovations across the entire building. The aim was to create a vibrant and welcoming space for all visitors to enjoy music, arts, and cultural events. The performance spaces have been modernized with upgrades to the acoustics and they've also been made more accessible. The building's cellars are in use for the first time and have been repurposed as education and performance spaces.
