Venue Hire and Events 

Originally opened in 1766, Bristol Old Vic is the country's oldest continuously working theatre, making it a truly magnificent venue for corporate events, one off nights or special occasions including weddings with endless possibilities to make your event truly remarkable.

Bristol Old Vic is currently undergoing extensive redevelopment work to our Front of House areas, which will see Coopers' Hall restored to its former glory as the premier event space for the city.

During our redevelopment, our Theatre, Backstage Bar, and other function room spaces are still available to hire, subject to availabiliy.

We will be taking bookings for weddings for 2019 from autumn 2017. For more information regarding wedding bookings, please contact Erick Muzard, Commercial Director on
