It’s time to go ballistic! For three days between the 16th - 18th June, part of the esteemed music venue will operate instead as the largest adult-only ball pit in the country.

Ball Pit Colston Hall Bristol

In a bid to see Bristol’s grown-ups rediscover the youthful exuberance of their childhoods, Colston Hall is hosting a rare opportunity for you to ‘ball so hard’ - but not quite in the way that Jay Z may have meant it…


Between the 16th - 18th June, The Lantern within Colston Hall will be filled with 200,000 balls to create, in their words, ‘a ball pit so large that every single person who enters it will be transported back to their childhood’.


The event is strictly 16+, with lights, music and massive inflatables on hand to augment the experience, and encourage you to unleash your inner child.


To book tickets for a 30 minute session, which are priced at £8.25, head over to Colston Hall’s website.
