Dance . Music . Arts

SOUTHBANK is a Community Arts, Music and Dance Venue based in Bedminster, Bristol.

We have a large variety of 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.
