Why we love it

The Bristol Old Vic is a cultural institution. It's the longest continuously-running theatre in the UK and following a huge redevelopment project, is now one of the most modern and comfortable with state of the art rehearsal rooms, a dramatically extended forestage and precision-engineered sightlines giving audiences an even more intimate theatrical experience. Plus their curation of plays and events is absolutely top-notch.

Varied programme of large-scale and studio shows in a stunning venue


The new bar is lovely, the theatre itself has charm and grandeur fitting of its age. Thoroughly enjoyed evening.


Drinks served in plastic cups. I prefer a glass. Serving was not a full pint. At £5.00 a pint, I would have appreciated a full pint.


The refurb is glorious, really added to the atmosphere, it feels so open.


Great venue that has a wide variety of amazing shows


Great experience, and also very helpful regarding disability access
