Hold your event at Bristol Old Vic and play your part in our history


Originally opened in 1766, Bristol Old Vic is the country's oldest continuously working theatre, making it a magnificent venue for corporate events, dinners and special occasions, including weddings, with endless possibilities to make your event truly remarkable.

Bristol Old Vic is currently undergoing extensive redevelopment work to our Front of House areas, which will see the grand Coopers' Hall restored to its former glory as the premier event space in Bristol.

We've teamed up with renowned local event experts, Fosters, to give you an exceptional culinary encounter and the ultimate event experience.



We will have several versatile events spaces including The Foyle Room suitable for meetings of up to 12 people, Coopers' Hall for dinners up to 120 and our Main Auditorium for theatre style events for up to 540. If you'd like, you can even hire the entire venue. We're here to make your event extra special, so just let us know what you need.


We are now taking bookings for events in our brand new spaces from Autumn 2018.


During our redevelopment, our Theatre, Backstage Bar, and other function room spaces are still available to hire, subject to availabiliy.
