Catch a show at the Bristol Old Vic


The oldest continually working theatre in the world hosts an abundance of theatrical works throughout the year. .

The Theatre Royal Bristol, home of Bristol Old Vic is the longest continuously-operating theatre in the UK. It was built in 1764 on Bristol’s characterful King Street, near the Harbourside and is now classed as a grade I listed building. 

Following a recent £12million redevelopment project, it’s also now one of the most modern and comfortable with state-of-the-art rehearsal rooms, a dramatically extended forestage and precision-engineered sightlines which give audiences an intimate theatrical experience. 

A cultural beacon for the city and the South West, the company prides itself on showcasing ground-breaking theatre and enjoys international recognition as a theatrical powerhouse. Famous alumni from the Old Vic Theatre School include Daniel Day Lewis.
