Bristol's Thekla is undergoing a massive £1m overhaul this summer

Bristol venue Thekla has announced it’s about to undergo a £1m overhaul.

One of the longest ships in Bristol’s floating harbour, the boat will see work carried out on its new hull as well as other improvements and repairs from 3rd June, reopening in September.

“There’s a lot of love for Thekla in Bristol, around the country and worldwide,” says George Akins of DHP Family, Thekla’s owner. 

“Both music fans and bands like Florence and the Machine, White Denim, Mumford & Sons, Ellie Goulding and many others who have played there over the years have taken part in some great nights. 

"We’re committed to preserving that heritage and that’s why we’re getting the new hull fitted - we need to make sure that Thekla continues to be a great night out for the next fifty years.”

Before then, the venue will host gigs from Easy Life (3rd April), Cherry Glazerr (4th), Fontaines D.C. (11th), Nilufer Yanya (12th), Stella Donnelly (24th), SOAK (16th May) and loads more.
