Bristol Old Vic and Theatre Royal Trust Limited

The Grade I listed Bristol Theatre Royal, built in 1766, is one of the finest examples of a Georgian theatre still in existence and this forms part of the magnificent Bristol Old Vic which is being redeveloped to support a new vision:

‘To delight, surprise and inspire the people of Bristol with excellent live theatre in an environment of creativity, welcome and adventure’

Bristol Old Vic is thriving under new leadership and our new approach is three-fold:

- To welcome world class artists to make work in response to the building and city
- To develop the work of artists and companies based in the region
- To play an essential role in the region by offering a diverse range of opportunities in education, outreach and community projects

We aim to create an internationally renowned theatre that is rooted in its community, through a process that will be artistically driven, managerially achievable and financially sustainable.

Our plan is contingent on a redeveloped building.
