Opening in 1997, the Alma Theatre takes great pride in being the oldest pub theatre in Bristol.  Converted into a perfect black box theatre, with in-tiered seating of 48, from what used to be two separate function rooms it is an incredibly versatile space that has seen hundreds of productions, many of which have been world premieres.  It has strong ties with most local theatre companies and is committed to championing new writing from the Bristol theatre scene.

For many years Bristol favourites, Theatre West, held a seasonal residency of original writing.  We work with university societies and amateur groups from the South-West to showcase their work as well as including some of the best touring theatre companies in our programme.  Our other connections include Bristol Old Vic, Hecate Theatre and Red Rope, to name a few.  Every season we have a host of varied productions that complement the diverse nature of our city and beyond.

If you are part of a local or touring theatre company and would like more information about booking the space please do not hesitate to get in touch!

Upcoming shows during our current season are below in the Events Listings section.
