Theatre in Bristol

Aside from the annual spectacle of Mayfest, Bristol is always alive with inventive new theatre projects. From large touring productions to experimental local talent, it's always worth keeping your eyes on smaller venues like The Cube Cinema and The Wardrobe Theatre. It goes without saying that you should always check what's on at the The Old Vic Theatre.
