Bristol Old Vic

Step inside the theatre and look around you. The graceful curved balconies which cradle you also carry the memories and imaginings of Bristol audiences over the last 243 years.

Its amazing intimacy makes this theatre a truly magical space for telling stories. It’s no surprise that actors, writers and directors love to work here.

From the front of the stage it feels as if you can reach out and touch the audience with your hand.

And it belongs to you…
