Venue Hire

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. 

You can see further photographs of the Galleries in our Flickr album.

To discuss your event contact Rachel Hinds, Events Manager, on or call 0117 906 7609.
