At the heart of this project is a need to preserve the very soul of the building, to better reveal its unique qualities and share its rich history in a modern age. However, to simply refurbish a historic asset would be a disservice to its past. New life and use needed to be brought to the building. The transformation of Colston Hall will not only preserve its old narrative, it will create a new one. It will continue to host old and rising stars, but, more importantly, it will now inspire and educate the future generations of performing arts.
