All aboard The Swallow!

Back by popular demand, our much-loved family musical Swallows and Amazons is a story of an idyllic era, of endless summer evenings and the beauty of youthful imagination.

Follow Captain John and his able crew as they set sail to Wildcat Island on an exotic adventure to encounter savages, capture dastardly pirates and defeat mortal enemies.

Created by Artistic Director Tom Morris (War Horse, A Midsummer Night's Dream), writer Helen Edmundson (Coram Boy) and with music by Neil Hannon (The Divine Comedy), Bristol Old Vic presents another unforgettable Christmas treat.
