Our annual showcase bringing nearly 200 Bristolians to perform on our stage is back! In the week of our 253rd birthday, we're throwing open our Theatre to our extraordinary community, to you, inviting you to share in a celebration of Bristol's creative heart.
This year's extravaganza will be hosted by local TV legend Joe Sims (Broadchurch) and features over 30 acts involving 191 people taking to our historic stage, showcasing everything from stand-up, spoken word and acrobatics to street dance, vaudeville and clowning, as well as original music and of course, lots of theatre!
The performances will include local choirs Bristol Harmony, The Raff Pack and the Bristol Amateur Operatic Society as well as Bristolian YouTube sensation Terry the Odd Job Man, Bristol Samba Band and local musicians Jonny Velon, Brook Tate, Sylvia Daley and 17-year old Louis Stone.
There will be other fabulous acts from: Bristol Improv Theatre, Charlotte Beedell, Mark Rutterford, Charlie Mitchell, Callum the poet, Liz Fairnell, Kerchief Theatre, Tamsin Pearce, Charlie George, Ralph La Wong, Adam De Santis, Away with the Clowns, Abdullah Bash, Imogen Greenwood, Startled Cat Theatre, Rachel McVay, Harry Allmark, Knotted Theatre, Suspension Theatre Company, Carlota Matos and Shaded Theatre.
Free for all the family, these performances are the perfect way to visit our newly refurbished building and a real treat for the late May bank holiday. Tickets are free and available on a first come, first served basis. There are three showcases over the day and doors open 15 minutes before each showcase begins.
