ABOUT BRISTOL OLD VIC

Bristol Old Vic is the longest continuously running theatre in the UK, and celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2016. The historic playhouse aims to inspire audiences with its own original productions, both at home and on tour, whilst nurturing the next generation of artists, whether that be through their 350-strong Young Company, their many outreach and education projects or their trailblazing artist development program, Bristol Ferment. They use their funding to support experiments and innovation, to allow access to their program for people who would not otherwise encounter it, or be able to afford it, and to keep their extraordinary heritage alive and animated. Bristol Old Vic's 2018 redevelopment transformed its front of house into a warm and welcoming space for all of Bristol to enjoy, created a new studio theatre and opened up its unique theatrical heritage to the public for the first time. Since the COVID pandemic temporarily shut its doors in March 2020, the organization has strived continuously to find new ways of sharing theatre with its community and the wider world. In the last 12 months the theatre has completely reimagined a digital version of itself, experimented with streamed performances available globally, maintained links with their most vulnerable participants and welcomed live audiences during the brief moments when restrictions were lifted. Now, once again, Bristol Old Vic is thrilled to be able to throw open its doors and welcome back audiences both physically and digitally as it looks toward the future.
