Bristol Old Vic

Bristol Old Vic is the oldest continuously working theatre in the English-speaking world. Our mission is to create pioneering twenty-first-century theatre in partnership with the people of our energetic city; inspired by the history and magical design of the most beautiful playhouse in the country.

We are led by artists who see the world with distinctive clarity and whose ability to articulate what they see allows us to understand and engage with our world afresh, whether that be through our 350-strong Young Company, our many outreach and education projects or helping ascendant artists by nurturing the spark or seed of an idea into something fully-formed.

We are publicly funded by Arts Council England and Bristol City Council, using that investment to support experiment and innovation, to allow access to our programme for people who would not otherwise encounter it or be able to afford it and to keep our extraordinary heritage alive and animated.

We strive to be welcoming, professional and boundlessly curious; playful, ambitious and rigorous; resourceful, honest, and generous; collaborative, Bristolian and world class.

Our theatre must be open to all, and we are committed to our programme and our team – both permanent staff and project-specific collaborators – being properly representative of the enormous range of talents, backgrounds and perspectives found in Bristol’s population and our wider society. We are excited to join the Stage Sight collective to share learning and best practice with our colleagues around the country as we work towards this ambition.
