A hub for underground art, music and experimental sound
Situated inside a disused document storage facility from the 90s, the dramatic industrial unit features five separate zones, including a 3,000-person capacity event space.
Martin Page, owner and director of Document & Motion Events Ltd explains how it all came together:
“We took hold of the former AVIVA document storage warehouse in January 2019. We saw the opportunity to breathe life into a building that had laid empty for a decade in a key central Bristol location. My business partner and I started the task of populating its many halls and rooms with artists, professionals, and creatives. Covid saw us shut down the site with a skeleton crew where commercial projects from Netflix and the BBC helped us stay afloat. Fast forward to 2023, we’ve now filled all the studios and offices with creative types and local businesses. And now, with Motion and the Marble factory as our guide, we’re planning some shows for our large 3,000 capacity venue Facility and bespoke cocktail area Record.”
The team promises a season of live music and electronic events that will turn this former document storage space into an iconic Bristol destination for cultural purveyors from all over the country in 2023.
