Theatre Bristol

South West

Our vision is to make Bristol a world-leader in inspirational theatre.

Theatre Bristol is a laboratory combining collective action for the arts with open, generous, grassroots support. We help create the conditions to make great art with as wide and diverse a community as possible.

We create the conditions in which the most inspiring theatre can be made and experienced in Bristol, so that: Brilliant work is made in the city, there is greater equality in the theatre industry, Bristol artists are more resilient and can support lives, families and careers.

We do this in partnership with different people and organisations. We offer bespoke advice and support to artists and producers; we commission and produce new work; we run events (networking, inspiration, action planning); we host a user-generated website; we research new ways of working and we develop national and international exchange opportunities.
