Why Orange?

During our renovation in 2012, we found all manner of items left behind by our audiences, including candied orange peel, a favoured snack (and occasional projectile!) of previous Bristol Old Vic audiences. The fruity heritage doesn’t end there, as Coopers’ Hall was previously a fruit warehouse, and patrons would often buy tickets to shows from their local greengrocer!

Why Lavender?

Lavender honours the trailblazing spirit of our legendary Theatre Manager, Sarah McReady. Sarah was well-known by her lavender-scented perfume, but she is remembered today for the pioneering achievements she made in her 20 year tenure at the theatre, taking Bristol Old Vic from strength to strength. It is also said that Sarah’s ghost still occupies the building, so if you catch the scent of lavender, you might be in the presence of a true BOV icon.

Why Thunder?

Bristol Old Vic’s Thunder Run is one of three surviving in the country, and the only one still in use. It was used in the 18th Century to create the sound of thunder that would echo around the auditorium whenever a production needed to conjure up a storm. We are incredibly proud to be the home of this magical piece of theatre history.
