Treat your guests to an unforgettable event in the heart of Bristol, set in a magnificent Grade II* listed building and with world-class exhibitions as a unique backdrop.
From conferences, training days and meetings, to evening receptions, launches, gala dinners or intimate dining, the Sharples and Winterstoke Galleries are a stunning setting for truly special events.
Your Guests will be welcomed on to our impressive marble landing, overlooked by a breath-taking atrium, and are invited to mingle on the spacious terrace overlooking Queen’s Road and the Victoria Rooms.
The RWA is one of only five Royal Academies of Art in the UK. It is a registered charity which has been self-supporting for over 150 years. By hiring our spaces for an event you are kindly supporting the RWA to fund our activities and maintain our beautiful buildings. The RWA receives no regular national or local government funding, and is dependent on self-generated income, investment and charitable support.
What AV is available?
We have wifi, projector, screen and laptop available for free to hirers of the space.
Are refreshments and catering included?
For smaller numbers, our resident cafe, The Epiphany, is able to provide tea and coffee. For larger numbers we ask hirers to organise catering direct with external providers. We highly recommend Papadeli for a range of food, and Bristol Fine Wine for your wine needs.
