Default UK music venue renamed after anti-racism protests

UK music venue renamed after anti-racism protests

Sep 23, 2020

A UK arts and entertainment venue named after a 17th century slave trader whose statue was toppled during anti-racism protests has been renamed, its owner has announced.

Bristol Music Trust said Colston Hall will now be known as Bristol Beacon after a lengthy consultation with thousands of local people.

The venue, which is undergoing a 49 million refurbishment, was built nearly 150 years after the death of Edward Colston.

In the past I have visited Bristol and thought it was quite a pleasant place. It's now on my places-to-never-visit-again list which is headed by London, the place of my birth.
