For nearly 250 years, the Bristol Old Vic has been at the centre of the Bristol theatre world, staging everything from tried-and-true classics to brand new, experimental productions. None other than Sir Laurence Olivier open the Old Vic's theatre school in 1946, with its professional theatre company frequently touring the UK and overseas. In 2012 the theatre underwent refurbishment to improve airflow and audience sightlines, with continuing redevelopment into 2016.
