The People’s Tour

Inspired by the people, performers, and players who have walked the boards through our two-and-a-half-century tenure, learn more about our world-class theatre and the productions that made history.

The People’s Tour combines myth, fact and Bristolian folklore, as our experienced tour guides expertly weave past and present into a thrilling and informative experience. The perfect morning for anyone with an interest in 18th–21st-century theatre and the people behind Bristol Old Vic’s rich history.

Spaces regularly included on The People’s Tour: The new Bristol Old Vic Foyer; The Georgian Auditorium, Stage, Gallery, and Pit passages; The Linbury Paintshop; The Weston Studio; Coopers’ Hall.

Duration: approximately 1 hour. Tickets £12 Standard / £10 Open Concession / £15 Pay it Forward.

As a working theatre with ongoing rehearsals and other technical work, there are certain times when parts of the building will be inaccessible. We always endeavour to provide a true behind-the-scenes experience, but it may be necessary for tours to be rescheduled in rare circumstances.

Please advise your tour guide if you are uncomfortable with heights. All tours have a step-free route for people with access needs.
