Hen & Chicken Studio Specifications: 9m x 15m

The Hen & Chicken Studio was fully refurbished in 2018, this venue space is on the first floor directly above the main bar and is totally self contained with its own toilets, bar, stage & sound desk and is fully air conditioned. The Hen & Chicken Studio is exceptionally versatile lending itself equally to live performances, comedy & music events as well as parties, buffets and corporate events. For event planners there is an en-suite “Green room” also available on the 1st floor for artistes. Please see below for venue hire details.

Private Parties

Please note that for private parties, the house sound system is only suitable for background music (and is available at no extra cost), any party providing their own DJ should also provide all their own speakers, sound equipment & disco lighting. If the sound desk is required for a band / microphone, a Hen & Chicken approved sound engineer would be required at an additional cost. Where a private party does not require a food menu, an additional charge will be made for a bar tender service in the room (see ancillary charges).

The Comedy Box

The Studio is home to The Comedy Box, which in 2019 celebrated it’s 25th anniversary of bringing some of the best stand up comedy shows to Bristol & the South West.
