The Fleece

One of the city’s oldest venues, The Fleece caters to those who like their music live and their guitars loud

After a rocky few years and a brief stint in cover act purgatory, one of Bristol’s oldest venues is back doing what it does best. A beautiful old building just a stone’s throw from Temple Meads station and conveniently situated next door to a real ale pub, The Fleece is a little rough round the edges, but packed with character.

The interior is unassuming, but charming; a good combination of flagstone floors, stone pillars and very reasonably priced drinks. The intimate 450-person capacity makes it the ideal spot to get up close and personal with the band.

The Fleece has a vibrant history and a knack for booking artists on the cusp of greatness. Legendary acts such as Nirvana, Oasis, Jeff Buckley and Amy Winehouse have all played shows here and helped etch the venue a place in Bristol music legend.
