Bristol Arts Channel

A cracking night out from the comfort of your own home

Bristol Arts Channel - a lockdown lifeline for audiences missing the buzz and community of Bristol’s brilliant arts scene - will unveil its pilot programme in May, bringing together venues and artists from across the city to create moments of online togetherness in May and June.

Founding partners include Watershed, Bristol Old Vic, Colston Hall, St Pauls Carnival, Trinity, Spike Island, St George’s Bristol, MAYK, Arnolfini, Paraorchestra & Friends and Bristol Museums with support from Bristol & Bath Creative R&D and The Space. More details on how artists and audiences can get involved will also be shared.

The programme will include streamed performances, live and archived, interactive events, carnivalesque experiments, online galleries and mini-festivals, all curated by Bristol’s cultural organisations to give you the pleasure and thrill of going out from the comfort of your own home.


Our inaugural season of streamed work features five acclaimed Bristol Old Vic productions, and will run from 29 May to 3 Jul. We will list them here as we announce each title. Click each title for more information.
