Theatre Tours

Join us for a Theatre Tour with our in-house expert guide who will take you back through the Theatre’s 250-year history – from the origin of its beautiful Georgian design, to tales of the myriad first-class actors who have trod its boards over the years.

Explore our fully transformed spaces, from our beautifully designed foyer, to the brand new Weston Studio, and our long-awaited Heritage offer. Also enjoy the classic elements of our building that have kept this theatre running for over two centuries,  including: access to our historic auditorium and several back- and side-stage areas.


Theatre Tours

Running every Thursday and Saturday morning at 10:30am, explore the best of what Bristol Old Vic has to offer with a Theatre Tour. The perfect morning outing for anyone interested in theatre and Bristol Old Vic’s rich history.

As a working theatre with ongoing performances, rehearsals and other technical work, there are certain times when parts of the building will be inaccessible. We always endeavour to provide a true behind-the-scenes experience, but in rare circumstances it may be necessary for tours to be rescheduled.
