Meetings and conferences

M Shed is a world-class cultural landmark set on the harbour side in the heart of Bristol. Holding a meeting or conference here provides unrivalled opportunities for your clients, guests or team members to experience something unique and inspiring.

Our versatile Event Suite can either be used as one space or divided into three different rooms. Each has their own separate access, use of the reception room and cloakroom and all have direct access onto the balcony with spectacular panoramic views across the harbourside and city.

We offer state-of-the-art AV equipment in each of our event spaces, making it easier for you to choose a unique venue for your conference or meeting without compromising on the quality of your event.

Looking for a smaller meeting space?

If you don’t have large numbers for your event but you want to host your meeting at M Shed we also have the Studio spaces available to hire. Perfect for smaller team meetings, board meetings, training sessions, etc. we have something to cater for your requirements.
