Christmas Parties

Nothing compares to the uniquely vibrant atmosphere of Bristol Old Vic – a place that’s entertained people for centuries, right in the heart of the Old City. 

Accommodating 12 to 150 guests, our flexible and elegantly designed spaces are perfect for hosting your Christmas event. We’ve teamed up with expert local caterers to deliver exclusive Christmas lunchtime feasts and evening functions. 

With beautifully modernised facilities and a fabulous food and drink offer, our team will ensure you celebrate in style. Ranging from sit-down lunches to private parties, our Christmas packages can be bespoke to you. 

Your personal Event Manager will be available to discuss your space and menu requirements, and to plan your unique Christmas event!

The food was amazing, I can’t tell you how many comments I have had.... It made such a change from another traditional Christmas meal. Everything was great and we will definitely keep Bristol Old Vic on our radar for future events!
