Events

Ashton Gate Stadium, also home to Bristol City Football Club, is the leading sports and leisure venue in the South West of England.

Ashton Gate Stadium hosts a variety of events throughout the calendar year. Including the British & Irish Lions tours live at the Bristol Sports Bar & Grill, we host a number of prestigious sporting events on the biggest indoor pub screen in the UK.

This summer Wimbledon will be shown at the Sports Bar as well as our regular cocktail making masterclasses and our MoTown tribute night later in the year.
