Parish History

St George's Church, Brandon Hill
St George's is a church in the Clifton area of Bristol, England.
It was built between 1821 and 1823 by Sir Robert Smirke in a Greek Revival style[1]. St George's was a "Waterloo church"— and the only one in Bristol to receive government money from the first grant under the Church Building Act of 1818.
It has been designated by English Heritage as a grade II* listed building.[2]
Concert venue
In 1976 St George's Music Trust was formed and in succeeding years they established the church as a major concert venue, initially known as St George's, Brandon Hill. The main body of the church seats an audience of 562 and the crypt has been transformed into a bar and recording studios which are regularly used by the BBC.[3] Further information available, see reference.[1]
