Bristol Old Vic

Bristol Old Vic is the longest continuously-running theatre in the UK. It boasts a beautiful Georgian Main House auditorium.

Since celebrating its 250th anniversary in 2016 the venue has been undergoing a multi-million pound redevelopment to transform its front of house and creating a new Studio Theatre, the project is due to be completed in autumn 2018.

I’m constantly delighted by the talent, commitment and drive of our students. Their curiosity and joy in the work gives us all energy and keeps me on my toes! My goal is to ensure that their voices serve their acting - both in theatre and recorded media. They need to be able to project, learn accents, respond to a wide variety of texts and have a voice that is healthy and be able to sustain long tours and tough filming schedules. This involves them working extremely hard – but having fun as well. When the new students see the final year students in production for the first time I know they’ll come into class the next day fully understanding the high standard they’re working to achieve.
