A touch of drama…

Nearly time for Panto season…wait for it… oh yes it is! And the Festive season is the perfect time for a theatrical treat.

The oldest working theatre in the UK, the Bristol Old Vic won a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant to transform it into an “internationally significant heritage destination”. 

A  £12.5 million, conservation and major refurbishment project brings the crumbling 18th Century theatre into the 21st Century and the interior has been stunningly restored back to its Georgian beauty with all the delights of comfortable seats, modern heating and lighting!
Closer to home, with a love of the theatre and the performing arts we can all have our own dramatic and sumptuous (and suitably affordable) space brought to us by Cole and Son’s Mariinsky collection featuring a host of damask patterns in sumptuous colours each paying homage to iconic theatres from around the world.
Bristol Old Vic’s glorious auditorium.
