Bristol Old Vic

    The oldest continuously working theatre in the English speaking world.

    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.
