To ensure the future of our iconic venue on a ship, Thekla, we are having to replace the whole of the grand old ship’s hull. This is an expensive and complicated operation but will mean you’ll be able to enjoy music on the Thekla for many more years to come.
It’s not something we’d expected to have to do, and it’s costing in the region of £1m which would lead to closure of most venues of it’s size.
So to help fund this essential work £1 has been added on to your ticket purchase. Thanks for your help!”
The Thekla is Bristol’s only music venue and nightclub on a boat! From toe-tapping live Americana to the downright dirtiest dubstep this side of London and everything inbetween, we have all your musical needs covered. We play host to the cream of the city’s weekly club nights as well as national and international touring live acts every week. Welcome aboard.
