Many venues, just like Merchant’s Hall, provide amenities such as various and versatile event areas, unique lighting and interiors, as well as many other amenities. In the central districts of Bristol, you can find venues like The Bristol Stable, which has harbourside event spaces, semi-private areas and a modern industrial feel, all while being close to many iconic spots like Bristol Cathedral or the dockside museum M Shed.

With our ‘Catering and Drinks’ filter, you can find venues with your preferred type of catering, such as Veeno Bristol, which allows external catering or Steinbeck & Shaw, which has an extensive vegan, kosher and halal menu. 

When it comes to equipment rental, security, or entertainment, most venues offer these amenities, either including them in the hire fee or providing them for an additional fee. Always ask venue managers directly about your specific needs.

Are there any specific local regulations for hosting events in Bristol?

Yes, Bristol has regulations, especially for large gatherings in public spaces or those requiring special permissions. Your event might need to receive approval from  Bristol City Council and Bristol's Safety Advisory Group or get a special event licence. You can find more info about specific permits and how to apply for them on this official site of Bristol City Council. Always consult with your chosen venue regarding necessary permits, especially for events in open parks or near landmarks like the Clifton Suspension Bridge. 

Additionally, each venue has its own regulations and host policies, such as no minors after a certain hour in a venue or alcohol licence restrictions. You can find that information in each venue description of Tagvenue listings. Remember that regulations vary from venue to venue, and they might change depending on the type and size of your event.
