Queen + Adam Lambert are first band to submit time capsule for YTL Arena Bristol

Celebrating our past, and our future

YTL Arena Bristol will be celebrating the Brabazon Hangars’ pioneering history and future milestone events with a glazed ‘Walk of Fame’.

What was once a service culvert running under the floor through the centre of the Central Hangar will be repurposed into a unique feature to store and showcase a series of time capsules.

Each clear-cased capsule will contain specially selected items and be carefully placed in the 100-metre-long channel which will be glazed so future audiences can encounter entertainment history beneath their feet.

The first two capsules will include one to mark the Hangar’s 70 Years of Aviation History and another to celebrate the beginning of the building’s transformation, with Queen + Adam Lambert.
