Dance . Music . Arts

SOUTHBANK is a Community Arts, Music and Dance Venue based in Bedminster, Bristol.
We have spaces for meetings, live music, dance rehearsals, private functions, festivals, workshops and just about anything else you can think of!

A local meeting place and melting pot for creatives, dancers, poets and their friends and just about anyone else who enjoys good music, dance, good beers and local ciders in a friendly smoke-free atmosphere.

It's a unique social mix where you can drink a pint of ale, do a salsa or ballet class, join in the open-mic nights or just listen to the endless stories from the locals.

 FEATURED EVENTS 

Pie, pint, rugby and a ramble…sounds like the perfect day!

Dust off your boots for a six mile sponsored walk and watch the final Six Nations game at the finish line while raising vital funds for Bristol’s only adult hospice.

Join us on Saturday 16 March 2019 from 12pm for The Bristol Men’s Walk. Starting from the SouthBank Club in Bedminster, the circular route begins along the river path before winding up to Leigh Woods and Ashton Court. You’ll be welcomed back at the SouthBank Club with hot pies, cold pints and England v Scotland on the big screen!

With sons, fathers, brothers and friends all taking part, it’s a brilliant day out for everyone. Your entry fee, £18 for adults and £12 for under 18s (minimum age 14 years), covers the cost of the day. Making a personal donation or raising sponsorship on top of this will help St Peter’s Hospice to continue providing care for local patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

It's the night after the day before or it isn't? Who knows if we're destined for a shipwreck or we've only just hit the tip of the iceberg. Whatever!

The floating palace Recession version 2 will take to the high seas, ignoring the ebb and flow and celebrating fashion on the crest of a wave.
The models will strut their varying sizes and ages, and as is their want many will go overboard.
Not to be taken too seriously. A hilarious night out that ends in a rush to the dressing room to QE2 and grab the fabulous vintage and extraordinary recycled clothes for sale.
Recession Fashion Shows are known for their chaos, merriment and the eclectic mix of glorious second hand clothes for sale at the end. Every show has a theme Top of the Frocks, Les Desirables, Novel Ideas and at MShed last season Dug Out to Party, celebrating Bristol Music and fashion through the decades. Back in our own fishing waters at the wonderful SouthBank Club again, we’re CRUISING this time.
We celebrated with Miss EU, we warned with The End is Nigh, now we’re simply sailing into the blue escaping from it all, if ever there was a night for getting away from it all…..
We'll be seabourne....
At the Southbank Club, Dean Lane BS3 1DB

 Topette!! 2019 UK Tour

Anglo-French acoustic five-piece, Topette!! return to the UK for a spring tour in April / May
2019. This band is a must see, for anyone interested in traditional European dance music,
for folk fans, French dancers and discerning listeners alike.
The band’s debut album, C’est le Pompon… was well received across the continent, and
they have continued to thrill audiences, with their unique, energetic take on instrumental
folk tunes. This tour will see the band firing on all cylinders, as they prepare to make their
second album, Rhododendron, to be released later this year. Featuring the peerless
diatonic button accordion maestro, (and multiple BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winner), Andy
Cutting, alongside the “enfant terrible” French bagpiper and banjo plucker, Julien
Cartonnet, with James Delarre on violin, Tania Buisse on Bodhrán and Barnaby Stradling on
acoustic bass guitar, these guys and gal are literally having a bal!
