Exhibition and sound installation

Opening times: Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 2pm–4pm
Colston Hall is proud to present Sound System Culture: Bristol, an exhibition documenting Bristol’s rich history of reggae sound systems through photographs, audio recordings, archive film footage and other memorabilia. As part of the display, visitors will have an opportunity to interact with Heritage HiFi, a vintage-style sound system custom-built for the project, consisting of a record deck, amps and speaker boxes.
Curated by Al Newman and Mandeep Samra, the exhibition forms part of the Sound System Culture national tour developed by Let’s Go Yorkshire, celebrating reggae sound systems in key cities throughout the UK.
