ENTRY TO BEESES FOR FRIDAY NIGHT BANDS IS FREE
You may know we like music at Beese’s and having introduced live bands for every Friday* in 2017 and 2018 we are in the process of lining up another great mix of Bristol and nearby talent for 2019.
Despite having some fantastic bands lined up for 2019 entry to see them at Beeses will remain free.
BristolFerry Boats run a Friday Night trip from Welsh Back to Beeses and the ticket price includes the journey to Beeses AND food when you get here.
