The Royal West of England Academy

The RWA is an amazing space for a drinks and canapes event. Being an art gallery, time in the space is limited therefore only really suiting a smaller corporate function or birthday drinks. However, it does contain five spectacular galleries on the first floor, a smaller more intimate gallery and a perfect space for meetings, lectures and seminars on the lower ground floor.
