The Royal West of England Academy was Bristol's first art gallery. A beautiful Grade II* listed building, dating from 1858, its main galleries provide a stunning concert setting, with a unique backdrop and a vibrant acoustic. The balcony area is the perfect place to host our post-concert discussions.

Victoria Rooms

A familiar Bristol landmark, the Victoria Rooms first opened its doors to the public in May 1842 and for many years served as themost important and lively cultural centre in the West of England. As well as it's main auditorium, the Victoria Rooms also boasts the more intimate Recital Room. A beautiful setting for chamber music concerts, the Recital Room will host the second concert in the NMSW series.

St George's Bristol

Built between 1821 and 1823 to serve the parishioners of Brandon Hill, this former church is, today, one of the country’s finest concert halls.  Tucked away in central Bristol, just off Park Street, St. George's hosts a year-round programme of live music including classical, jazz, folk, world, spoken word and family concerts.

NMSW is delighted to be holding the final concert of our 2013/14 season at this wonderful venue.

Clifton College

Established in 1862 Clifton College is one of the most beautiful educational establishments in South West England. It is supporting NMSW and will host our composition workshop in the Joseph Cooper Music School.
