    The Fleece is keen to promote equality of opportunity for people with disabilities.

    The venue is situated on an old cobbled street with pave stone sidewalks, which is some places can be uneven. The entrance to The Fleece has a small lip (no higher than 10mm) into the main doorway, after this, there are no other steps or lips anywhere in the venue.

  • Tickets for sold out shows

    Sold out means sold out. Venues never “hold tickets back for the door”.  If a gig is advertised as sold out please don’t contact us asking if we have any returns, because we don’t sell any tickets direct. All tickets are sold through our ticketing partners Eventbrite and Bristol Ticket Shop and all of these agencies have a no refund policy.

  • Play At The Fleece

    The Fleece hosts a number of local events throughout the year, open to all ages and genres, from seated acoustic events to sweaty metal shows (and everything in between). Our regional events team has over ten years’ experience putting on shows in Bristol, and with our touring-grade PA, lighting and monitoring, the Fleece offers an insight into what it’s like to play on the UK tour circuit.

    The Fleece is a 450-capacity national touring venue and we have a large waiting list, so we have to be selective with the bands we work with. All new acts must go through our “Scouting Session” route, where we can assess your suitability for our shows. Those that impress us will be put forward for our bigger weekend dates and tour support slots throughout the year.

    To be added to the waiting list for the next Scouting Session event, please email.

    PLEASE NOTE: We do not take band bookings over the phone or via Facebook. Please do not attach large files when sending emails. Web links to Soundcloud, Facebook or online press packs are fine. 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. Please do not add us to your mailing list, or send us tour packages.

  • Show Information / Timings

    We generally aim to wrap up Sunday and midweek 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 merchandise 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 Facebook where possible.
