Outdoor events

Our high footfall squares are perfectly situated in the centre of the city's bustling but beautiful harbourside. They are perfectly located for product launches, photo shoots, themed attractions, markets, fairs, parties and concert performances.

As well as being busy locations in the centre of Bristol, these popular public spaces offer a great backdrop to any event with their vibrant collection of art works, stunning water features and light sculptures.


We understand that every event is unique. Please contact us to discuss your requirements so we can tailor a package to suit you and your budget.
