1532 Performing Arts Centre

The 1532 Performing Arts Centre opened in September 2016 providing state-of-the-art facilities for music, dance and drama at Bristol Grammar School. 1532 has multiple spaces, all of which are available to hire.

A versatile auditorium with retractable seating for between 245-320 audience members which can accommodate a range of stage layouts. Top of the range sound equipment and an exclusively LED lighting rig provide a professional edge to any production.

The Mackay
This stunning recital hall has excellent acoustics and can seat 80-100 audience members, including on a balcony level. Attached to The Mackay is a recording studio and a band practice room.

Dance Studio
With floor-to-ceiling windows offering a panoramic view over the School site, this large, sprung-floor studio provides an ideal space for dance rehearsals and lessons.

Drama Studio
A generous space that be blacked out completely and uses traditional lighting fixtures. This room is ideal for smaller, fringe-style performances and as a rehearsal space. 

1532 also has a spacious foyer with a bar, which could be used as an art gallery.

If you would like to hire any of these spaces, please visit our 1532 website for technical details and how to book.
