The Bristol Old Vic Reopening Fund

We cannot wait to reopen our doors and welcome live audiences back to Bristol Old Vic. As we work towards fully reopening and the recovery of our organisation, there are still big challenges ahead.

The success of our applications to the Culture Recovery Fund has been welcome news, and the generosity of our supporters has been truly humbling. This support has been an absolute lifeline, and enabled us to continue with our most vital work throughout the pandemic.

In order to successfully recover and fully re-open, we need to raise £500,000, which will see us produce inspiring theatre, employ the freelance workforce that has been so badly affected by the pandemic, support artists by commissioning new work and transform the lives of others through our community engagement activities.

There are many ways to help, both big and small, which will make an enormous difference. From making a donation, to becoming one of our Champions, to keeping a seat warm in our auditorium, or supporting us when you shop via Amazon Smile.

Our work is essential to the future of our wonderful city. A Bristol without Bristol Old Vic is unthinkable. There are many ways you can ensure that what was started in 1766 is able to continue. Thank you.
