Royal West of England Academy description

Museum / Business Meeting Rooms / Party Venue / Historic Venue / Commercial Venue

Large (1-300)

Treat your guests to an unforgettable event in the heart of Bristol, set in a magnificent Grade II* listed building with world-class exhibitions as a unique backdrop.

From conferences, training days and meetings, to evening canapé receptions or intimate dining, the RWA is a stunning setting for truly special events.

The RWA offers five spectacular, naturally-lit galleries that are available for event hire throughout the year. With every hire of the Main Galleries, we offer a complimentary introduction to the current exhibition, offering your guests an exclusive insight into the themes of our world-class exhibitions.

Your guests will be welcomed on to our impressive marble landing, overlooked by a breath-taking atrium, and are invited to mingle on the spacious terrace overlooking Queen’s Road and the Victoria Rooms.

The RWA is one of only five Royal Academies of Art in the UK. It is a registered charity which has been self-supporting for over 150 years. By hiring our spaces for an event you are kindly supporting the RWA to fund our activities and maintain our beautiful buildings. The RWA receives no regular national or local government funding, and is dependent on self-generated income, investment and charitable support.

Please note: we can only accomodate seated dinners during our Annual Open shows, between August-December (approx) annually.
We cannot accomodate dancefloors.
The RWA is not licensed for wedding ceremonies
