The Bierkeller Theatre is a highly flexible performance space in the heart of Bristol (located in the Bristol Bierkeller). We started in January 2011, and have since hosted over one hundred productions with many more programmed. We are proud to operate an open door policy for young and graduate companies with viable productions, and therefore encourage all companies to get in touch! We are able to offer rehearsal space, assistance with advertising, and technical help too. We operate a technical intern scheme, guided by our in-house technician and the generosity of local freelance specialists – the scheme currently works with students from UWE and Filton College. Last year we partnered with charity projects such as VDay – raising around £2000 for local charity SARSAS and The Vday Spotlight Campaign with an inhouse production of ‘The Vagina Monologues’, Strictly Come Dancing for St Peter’s Hospital, and another In- House production ‘ War 100 for Help for Heroes and The Poppy Appeal. Looking to the future, we are currently working with Vday for a second year, expanding our horizons with our first touring production, as well as continuing with our growing theatre, music and events program in house.
