Bristol Old Vic Theatre School is one of the most successful and well-respected conservatoire drama schools in the UK.
We attract the very best talent in students and staff, and our courses are recognised nationally and internationally as a benchmark of quality in professional acting, technical, production and management training.
Bristol’s café and bar scene is bustling and eclectic and its music scene has an established international reputation due to the success of such Bristol musicians as Portishead, Massive Attack, Tricky and Andy Shepherd.
Bristol has a thriving arts scene.
It is home to The Bristol Old Vic, the country’s oldest working theatre, the contemporary arts space The Arnolfini; the independent cinema and media centre, Watershed, the innovative theatre space, The Tobacco Factory Theatres and the concert venue, The Bristol Beacon (formerly The Colston Hall).
