72 – 73 Old Market, Bristol, BS2 0EJ
We now offer a Recording Facility for bands who want to record their live sets, this can discussed direct with the Sound Engineer on the night. Alternatively bands are welcome to come in and record during daytime hours, if you are interested in booking a session then please email Paul (contact email above). Both options are available at competitive rates.
Q. I represent an artist – How do I get a gig at Exchange? A. Our In House staff mostly fill our diary with bookings from external promoters. We actively encourage local bands to take a DIY approach in promoting their own shows and are happy to offer a discounted rate on hire in these circumstances. By promoting your own shows you can not only make a lot more money for all artists involved (when compared to the £1 per head flyer deal), but you can also curate the event to ensure that you are playing with similar artists. If you are interested in this option please email firstname.lastname@example.org – If you are after a specific support slot then you will be able to find out which promoter is programming the event via the event page and contact them direct. Most promoters can be found via Facebook / Google Search, but we are unable to give our Promoter’s emails.
Q. Where can I buy tickets for events at Exchange? A. Different promoters use different ticket outlets, generally we link to them through our website.
Q. I don’t seem to have received my ticket / e-ticket? What should I do? Will I be able to get in without one? A. Please contact the ticket seller direct. They will contact the promoter for the event. Always remember to check your Junk Mail first as many customers find e-tickets there.
Q. I have lost an item at Exchange – Who do I contact? A. Email email@example.com and please be aware that we can only check for your lost items during opening hours, so you may need to be patient.
Q. The event I wish to attend says sold out on your website – Will there be tickets left on the door? A. Unfortunately not.
Q. How can I avoid the queues at sold out Club Events? A. The rush on the door can generally be avoided if you arrive before 11.30pm or after after 12.30am. Alternatively if you buy physical tickets as opposed to e-tickets (Bristol Ticket Shop is usually your best bet) you are likely to get in much quicker as e-tickets take much longer to check.
Q. Do you have a cloakroom? A. Yes, it costs £1 per item. Please ask at the Bar.
Q. What is your re-entry policy? A. Due to licensing restrictions we are unable to allow re-entry after 11pm. There is a smoking area you can use after 11pm, but you are not allowed to drinks outside after 11pm.
Q. Where is the best place to park? A. After 6pm there is free bay parking on Old Market Street and around the back of the venue near Gardiner Haskins. Alternatively you can park at Cabot Circus Car Park which is approximately a 5 minute walk from the venue.
Q. Is there access for wheelchair users? A. The ground floor is easily accessible for wheelchair users but unfortunately all our toilets are also located on the first floor level. We have found previously that some of the other pubs in the local vicinity will allow wheelchair users to make use of their toilet facilities. The Bar and Live Room are on the Ground Floor and are therefore accessible to all.
