Supporters of Building a Sound Future

Huge thanks to all our confirmed supporters – Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund, Bristol City Council, University of Bristol, many national and local Trusts & Foundations, individual supporters and Bristol based corporations. Between you all we have now raised £6.2 million, with just £100,000 to go!

Completing both the Apollo appeal and the crowdfund will complete the Appeal. Construction of the new extension is now officially underway and due to complete in February 2018.

How you can help

All funding partners of Building a Sound Future are directly investing in the long term future of St George’s Bristol and in the future generations of world class artists, music-lovers and learning participants of all ages who we engage with, together with the wider population of Bristol and the South West.

All will benefit directly from the transformation of St George’s as a world class concert venue, major cultural asset and leading Bristol arts venue.

We welcome all levels of support from signing up as one of the last 10 Apollo roundel sponsors, to contributing further to our crowdfund campaign – we value each and every contribution.

In the first instance please contact Simon Farley, Head of Fundraising and Development, St George’s Bristol, for further details on the partnership opportunities available via the following:
