What's On

Preview a new VR film experience with immersive, 3D spatial audio of one of The Paraorchestra and Friends performances The Anatomy of the Orchestra. This film was commissioned by Bristol Music Trust and The Paraorchestra and Friends and made in partnership with UWE Music Technology and the Impulse Innovation & Enterprise Studio.

Tom Marshman's performance 'A Haunted Existence' puts a lens on how trauma might be inherited through the LGBTQ+ community

Meet the grass roots activists fueling cultural change from Humans for Justice, City to SeaRife Magazine as well as other local changemakers.

In the Planetarium: Choose your own space journey in the brand new Solar System Odyssey show. Decide as an audience where the presenter takes you as you encounter to the most exotic destinations in our Solar System. 

Authentic Syrian food will be provided by Karam Kitchen - a Bristol based enterprise set up by Syrian refugees to provide employment opportunities, skills and confidence to refugees in Bristol. All proceeds from food ticket sales will go to Karam Kitchen to support their long term aims to rent a commercial kitchen and continue their work in the Bristol community.

To help reduce food waste please pre-book your food by adding 'After Hours - Karam Kitchen' when purchasing your ticket. (£5 advance / £6 on the night)
