PROSPECT: New cultural space set to launch in Bristol this summer

The team behind some of Europe’s most celebrated festivals, including Love Supreme, The Long Road, ION and Junction 2, AMAAD, are the new operators of a warehouse space in St. Philips, Bristol. Prospect will showcase over 20 years of experience in bringing together musicians, creatives and entertainers across all cultural genres at the space at 45 Feeder Road. 

Programming across Prospect’s inaugural year will celebrate a cross-section of entertainment, with comedy, sport and pop-up food, drink and fashion markets taking place at the venue throughout 2024 and beyond. The venue’s new music series will see AMAAD working in partnership with local club promoters including Team Love, The Blast and Dance Corp, as well as touring artists, to bring a diverse range of sounds to the space. Prospect’s first 12 months are set to showcase music from Jazz and Country through to House, Drum and Bass and Techno. 

The space, formerly known as Propyard, is currently benefiting from significant investment. Alongside bolstered cloakroom and washroom facilities, return visitors can expect an artisan food and drink offering, with local suppliers including St Philips locals, Lost and Grounded. A stand-out feature of the new space will be its state-of-the-art sound design, which has been developed in partnership with world-class audio manufacturers, L-Acoustics. The cutting-edge system will elevate live entertainment at the venue while minimising the external impact on the neighbouring community.

Paul Jack and Will Harold, Founders of AMAAD, said: “We can’t wait to get the doors open and welcome Bristol to our new home. It’s such an incredible space with so much opportunity in a city buzzing with talent and creativity.

“We have worked for many years with Bristol institutions like Team Love, and we’re collaborating with a network of local businesses and communities to create a venue that will serve Bristol’s cultural community, and become a hub of culture within the wider development of Temple Quarter and St Philips Marsh.”

The renovation is already underway with work currently taking place ahead of the summer season, with an opening lineup set to be announced shortly.
