Arnolfini - What's On
What's on at Arnolfini
Arnolfini is Bristol’s international centre for contemporary art, located on the harbourside in the heart of the city.

Woven into the fabric of Bristol since 1961, Arnolfini is a pioneer of interdisciplinary contemporary art, presenting an ambitious programme of visual art, performance, dance, film and music. Housed in a fully-accessible building at the heart of the harbourside, Arnolfini is an inspiring public space for contemporary art and learning, welcoming half a million visitors each year and offering an innovative, inclusive and engaging experience for all.

We are reopening with a greatly reduced capacity, our opening hours will be:

Thursday - Sunday each week, 12pm - 5pm.

Everyone is welcome but please book a 45 minute slot to support us welcoming you safely back to the galleries at a specified time - please book on the day you wish to visit on the right-hand side, this will take you through to available timeslots. Children are very welcome, please do just include them in your allocation when you book. A limited amount of walk-ups will be available on the day, but you may need to queue and wait for entry.

Entry is free, but please consider supporting Arnolfini with a donation so our work can reach everyone in our community. If you are unable to make a donation, please zero on the custom donation page and you will not be charged.

If you have any questions about the booking process, please email our Visitor Services team on and they will get back to you as soon as they can (we do have a reduced staff team in place, so please bear with us).

We ask all visitors to wear facemasks when visiting our galleries and bookshop.
