With an eventual capacity of 17,000, The YTL Arena Bristol sits only behind London’s O2 and the Manchester Arena. The development includes a new pedestrian bridge stretching over the railway, in a bid the emulate the Wembley Way walk toward Wembley Stadium.
The redevelopment plans of the area beyond the 17,000 capacity arena include transforming the other two hangars into a ‘Festival Hall’ and ‘The Hub’. Festival Hall would be a flat floor event space for conventions, exhibitions and working in tandem with the arena to attract significant scale events.
