In October 2021, Bristol Beacon (formerly Colston Hall) presented a concert by the London Symphony Orchestra at Bath Forum and broadcast it. The success has encourage Bristol Beacon to live stream the LSO and Simon Rattle's forthcoming Bath Forum concert and to make the concert available free of charge for a month to care homes across the country. This is sponsored by Bristol Care Homes, who wanted to extend the opportunity to watch the concert to all care homes across the country as many still contend with the impacts of the pandemic.

The concert takes place on 14 March 2022, and the programme is Hannah Kendall's The Spark Catchers, Dvorak's American Suite and Schumann's Symphony No. 2

Bristol Beacon first opened in 1867 as Colston Hall, the organisation announced its new name in 2020 and is currently mid-way through a major multi-million-pound transformation of its performance spaces, due to reopen in 2023.

Care Homes wishing to access the stream should email for information. Further information about the concert from the Bristol Beacon website.
