Bristol Old Vic update regarding the latest National Lockdown | 5 Jan

In light of the Government's announcement yesterday, we are today announcing the continued suspension of all performances at Bristol Old Vic until further notice.

This is a hard thing for us to do yet again, but the circumstances are unprecedented. This month's productions will be suspended but wherever possible we will reschedule events so no-one has to miss out on a show they'd like to see.

All customers who have already purchased tickets to suspended shows this Jan will be contacted directly by our Box Office with their options. If you have questions about your tickets, please wait until you have received an email about them. If you do not receive any information from us, due to high call volumes, please contact our Box Office via email at this time.

The Bar & Café also remains closed until further notice.

During this time, we will be working closely with other theatres, the Arts Council, Equity and DCMS to ensure that the interests of the independent artists who provide the rocket fuel for all of our creative industries are protected. 

And we will continue to champion the importance of creative opportunity in every part of society, particularly in challenging times such as these. 

If you or your child are involved with any of our Engagement work, including Young Company, our Engagement team will be in contact with updated information.

We strive to be welcoming, professional and boundlessly curious; playful, ambitious and rigorous; resourceful, honest, and generous; collaborative, Bristolian and world class.

We hope to see you soon!
