About Us

The Bristol Suspensions are a mixed a cappella group from the University of Bristol, and are the current UK Champions of A Cappella, after winning the 2021 ICCA UK Final. The group were also crowned Voice Festival 2016 Champions in only their second year of existence.

Formed in October 2014, the group has cemented its status as an established group in the UK A Cappella scene. Now in their seventh year, they have recorded two albums, released numerous music videos, singles, as well as many live performance videos. The group has won The Voice Festival UK, had two official sell out Fringe runs, toured North-Eastern USA, won the Irish International A Cappella Festival 2019 and received multiple awards for Outstanding Arrangement, Choreography, Vocal Percussion, and Audio Mix! The Bristol Suspensions have appeared on BBC One's Pitch Battle, ITV's This Morning with Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary and in 2021 the group won the ICCA UK Finals!
