Join us for a backstage tour with our in-house expert guide, where you'll be guided through the Theatre's 250-year-old history; from the origin of its beautiful Georgian design, to tales of the myriad of first-class actors who have trod our boards over the years.

You'll also learn about our current building works in-progress, and how the beautiful new foyer, restaurant, Studio Theatre and special event areas - set to launch in Autumn 2018 - will serve the Theatre and our audiences for generations to come.

For just £12 per person, your tour will also include a complimentary tea or coffee in our Backstage Bar, as well as a commemorative 250th Anniversary Programme for you to take home.

The perfect morning outing for anyone interested in theatre and Bristol Old Vic's rich history.
