The Bristol Old Vic Reopening Fund

Like so many theatres across the country, COVID-19 has delivered a hammer blow to our business. In March, we lost 75% of our income overnight. With restrictions set to remain in place for some time, there are still many challenges ahead for us as an organisation.

The success of our application to the Culture Recovery Fund is incredibly welcome news. Crucially, this will help us to us to remain open, and provides a strong platform from which we can now plan our recovery and look ahead with more certainty.

But we are not out of the woods yet. We need to raise £500,000 in order to continue to produce internationally acclaimed productions, commission artists, develop up-and-coming talent and transform the lives of others through our community engagement activities. Our work is essential to the future of our wonderful city and all who call it home.

A Bristol without Bristol Old Vic is unthinkable. There are many ways you can support us, and ensure that what was started in 1766 is able to continue. Thank you.
