The hall’s migrations series of world music remains one of the highlights of the city’s recent cultural calendar and St George’s is poised to set the stage alight once again in October with a very special night of music from across the globe.

The Global Gathering is a free mini-festival with seven artists and groups, celebrating the great migrant cultural traditions of Bristol and the South West, performing across two stages within the hall and organisers are on the lookout for artists to bring their talents to the showcase.
