BOV Theatre Club

The Theatre School is very proud of its long association with the Bristol Old Vic Theatre Club who also recently celebrated their 70th birthday!

Based at Bristol Old Vic, the club seeks to promote an understanding and passion for high quality theatre and is particularly keen to promote theatre for and by young people.

Theatre Club activities give an insight into various aspects of theatre

This may be through talks or discussion about the content, or simply enjoying a trip to the theatre in Bristol or further afield.

Through its close links with the Theatre School it helps publicise productions, awards annual prizes to outstanding students, organises occasional after show parties for student cast and technical crew, and invites BOVTS staff as Coffee Morning guest speakers.

The Bristol Old Vic Theatre Club is chaired by Fran Havard. Activities with the Theatre School are coordinated with the Theatre Club committee member John Bedford and the Theatre School’s Andrew Stocker.

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.
