Backwell Playhouse is a charming, intimate theatre in the south of Bristol. It boasts a strong and talented in-house theatre company and a thriving film club, as well as a stream of visiting companies and classes, all nestled within the heart of Backwell.

The Playhouse is a unique space, with 99 seats raking to a open and flexible performance area. The space has been used for plays, dance recitals, music performances, films and presentations. It’s even hosted productions in the round! With full technical facilities, backstage amenities and bar & foyer area, Backwell Playhouse truly is an amazing theatre.

The Backwell Playhouse Theatre Company produce at least three productions each year, all of which are challenging to both cast and audience, but always of the highest quality and entertainment. The company is always looking for new members, both front and backstage.

An entirely voluntary enterprise, the Playhouse is a charity that aims to advance the education of the public in the Arts, in particular the Arts of Drama and Literature. We are only successful in this venture by the hard work and dedication of those involved at the theatre.
