At Blast, we work a whole range of different venues where we help ensure events run smoothly. Take a look at a small selection of the venues we have worked at over the years..
For wedding receptions, large parties and charity balls the Great Hall has dramatic style. Of its many breath-taking features, the first thing to strike you about the Great Hall is its size and style. Accessed by a glorious stone staircase, this is one of the largest venues in Bristol with a floor space of 7,000 sq. ft., and one of very few venues in Bristol capable of seating up to 380 guests. But the Great Hall is more than big; it’s spectacular. Light floods in through vast leaded windows, and fifty feet above the floor soars a hammer-beam roof creating a lofty open space that exudes grandeur, history and tradition; setting the scene for an event to remember. Centrally located, the Great Hall is easy to get to by car and public transport from all over the city and there is some car parking available on site, at selected times, which can be prearranged. There is also a lot of additional on street and other car parks very close by.

The space is one large open venue, which is usually hired as a whole, but can be divided up by a heavy theatre curtain, dividing the Theatre Space from the Gallery/ Event Space.
