Are you interested in theatre?
The Bristol Old Vic Theatre Club champions the work of both the Bristol Old Vic and the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, as well as presenting its own programme of events.
We are a lively group of enthusiasts who are interested in all aspects of theatre. Based at our home in the Bristol Old Vic, we seek to promote theatre and share our passion for high quality performance.
We are particularly keen to promote theatre for and by young people. We organise events of interest to everyone who loves theatre.
We are convinced that, as members of the audience, we gain a great deal from learning about the creative process - from writing to production to performance.

Our club activities give us insight into various aspects of theatre, whether through talks or discussion about the content, or simply enjoying a trip to the theatre in Bristol or further afield.


Whether you are new to us or are long-established, we extend an especial welcome to all of you.

We hope you find your membership useful and enriching.

Please support our activities and, if you are new members, introduce yourselves to the members of the committee. We wish to see you, to meet you, to engage with you.

2017/18 has been a very busy year. 
The video below was shown at our AGM in November and gives a flavour of some of the highlights.
