Venue hire

M Shed is a world-class cultural landmark set on the harbourside in the heart of Bristol.

The museum has been designed to retain the character of the former 1950s transit shed but with the addition of purpose-built facilities and state of the art lighting and AV equipment which includes pin spots, down lighters and coloured LEDs with changeable settings.

The spaces at M Shed include the top floor Harbour View and Waterside Suites, which both boast panoramic views of the Harbourside from the rooftop terrace. The first floor is home to Studios 1 and 2, which are multi-purpose meeting and reception spaces. Lastly, the M Bar and Terrace is our cosy ground floor space, with access to the terrace overlooking the Harbourside.

M Shed has everything you need for a fantastic event. A setting that no other venue can match, excellent service and superb catering.
