Phase Two of the multi-million pound refurbishment Bristol Old Vic refurbishment project is almost complete and the city’s famous theatre is opening its doors to the public tomorrow night (Tues May 29) to unveil its autumn programme.
Visitors will soon get the chance to see the results of a major 18 month refurbishment of the historic Georgian Theatre, which was the beneficiary of more than £5 million worth of funding from the Arts Council in 2010. This will mark the end of phase two of a £19 million refurbishment and sees the Theatre Royal and backstage areas transformed. Read more about this in our previous article, here.
A spokesman for the Bristol Old Vic said: “The party is open to anyone with an interest in the ongoing story of Bristol Old Vic. We’ll be looking back at the achievements so far and the ways in which people can get a sneak peak of the auditorium before its official opening.”
There will be drinks, ticket competitions and lots of exciting news about our new programme for the rest of the year, much of which takes place in our newly redeveloped Theatre. It’s a non-ticketed event, and numbers are limited so be sure to arrive early.
