FAQs

Tickets:

Tickets cannot be purchased directly over the phone from the venue. All tickets should be purchased through one of our recognized sellers:

SeeTickets: www.seetickets.com / 0871 220 0260

Bristol Ticket Shop: www.bristolticketshop.co.uk / 0117 929 9008

Gigantic: www.gigantic.com / 0115 807 7900

We occasionally sell through additional agencies depending on the show. Please visit show pages on our website for direct ticket links and more info.

For all ticket queries including undelivered tickets, lost, damaged or stolen tickets and refunds on tickets for shows that have been cancelled or rescheduled, please contact your point of purchase and not the venue directly.

Tickets purchased for box office collection will be available at the venue box office from the time doors open on the day of the show only and not in advance. To gain admission you will need a copy of your order confirmation and a valid ID.

Beware of secondary ticket sellers. Fraudulent tickets such as cancelled and duplicated tickets can be sold on the secondary market. We are unable to help with any problems arising from the purchase of secondary tickets.

Age Restrictions:

All shows at The Fleece (excluding club nights and unless otherwise stated) are all ages, however under 16s must be accompanied by an adult and leave by midnight. All club nights are strictly over 18s only. Age restrictions vary for shows outside of The Fleece so please visit individual event pages on our website for more details.

Challenge 25: If you are lucky enough to look under 25 you will be asked to provide valid ID when purchasing alcohol. On entry you will also be asked to provide valid ID to prove you are over 16 if you wish to enter the venue unaccompanied by an adult.

Disabled Access:

The Fleece is keen to promote equality of opportunity for people with disabilities. We have one large disabled toilet and the entire venue is situated at street level meaning there is no issue with regards to access. Please contact us on 0117 945 0996 to discuss individual needs.

Seating:

There is no seating on all busy or sold out events. Some seating is provided on quieter and all-day events. Please contact us on 0117 945 0996 to discuss individual needs.

Show timings:

We generally aim to wrap up Sunday and week night shows by 11:15pm as we understand people need to travel home/get up early for work, however it is possible for shows to run over either for technical reasons or at the discretion of the band and their management. A ‘drinking up’ period for attendees to finish their drinks/buy merch is always allowed and depending on demand, the bar may remain open post show (this is at the managements discretion). Friday & Saturday shows generally finish at 10:30pm to make way for the club nights that follow. We will post running times on our Facebook/Twitter where possible.

Cloakroom:

Yes we do have a cloakroom! It’s along the corridor just past the gents toilet

Dress code:

Whatever you want!!!

Lost property:

If you have lost items or have left something in the cloakroom, please email info@thefleece.co.uk or call 0117 330 5954.

Cameras:

Compact cameras & camera phones are allowed unless specified on the day of the show. Please contact us to discuss permission/access for larger, professional cameras and equipment.

Parking:

Street parking is available immediately outside the venue and in the surrounding streets and is free from 6pm Mon-Sat and all day Sunday’s. There is plenty of parking available so you will never have to park more than a couple of minutes walk away. If you would prefer to park in a secure car park, the nearest multi-story is located 0.4 miles away on Queen Charlotte St (off Baldwin St).

Public Transport & Accomodation:

We are located just a short 10 minute walk from the city centre, a 10-15 minute walk from Temple Meads train station and a 15 minute walk from Bristol Bus Station.

The nearest hotel is the Travelodge situated on Mitchell Lane just a few hundred yards from the venue. Other nearby hotels includes the Novotel (Victoria St), the Hilton (Temple Way), the Mercure (Redcliffe Way) and the Premier Inn (King St). For those travelling by train, there is also the Ibis (Avon St), located just a 5minute walk from Temple Meads.

Want to play?:

If you are in a local and/or unsigned band and want to play for us, please email gigs@thefleece.co.uk. Please note we do not take band bookings over the phone or on Facebook. Please do not attach large files when sending emails. Web links to Soundcloud, Facebook or online press packs are fine.

Before emailing, please keep in mind we are a large national touring venue with high overheads and opening costs. If you are an unsigned band from 100 miles away and have no pull in the Bristol area we will not be able to book you. There is no such thing as an in-house crowd at The Fleece and all bands will be required to sell tickets.
