At Bristol Old Vic, we aim to create a programme which engages with, and reflects, the vitality, variety and vibrancy of our extraordinary city. Bristol, quite simply, is incredible; rich in history, heritage, cyclists, cider, endless invention and a bursting brook of rule-breaking artistic and cultural wonderfulness.

We hope to contribute to all of the above by building relationships and working with artists, audiences, spaces and places to create world class theatre and performance that a city like Bristol deserves.

Come and take a look at one of our many spaces or pop by and see a show and let us know what you think.

We're always happy to chat over an interval ice-cream...

  • A theatre with a well known acting school. Always charming for all (even amateur) drama class students. Nice to stop by while walking in Bristol.  more »
  • A theatre with history, but still somehow hip. Caught 'Into the void' and a Windrush play - both very good. You can order dessert with your dinner and pick it up in the interval!  more »

  • Saw The Singing Mermaid here in February 2019. The show was really excellent. The theatre itself is very nice, quite small and intimate, with a lovely interior. The view was good, even high up at the back. Acoustics also very good. My only complaint, as someone over 6’, is the limited leg room.
  • Gorgeous gem of a theatre! Beautiful auditorium and a lovely, renovated entrance with a lovely bar. The light show projected onto the Main House half an hour before curtain up is a particularly nice touch. Also, they do standing tickets for £5!!
