The Wardrobe Theatre

Independent theatre venue now part of the Old Market Assembly.


For five years, The Wardrobe was a little-known, miniature theatre above The White Bear pub in St Michael's Hill. With an expanding following and reputation for bold, imaginative performances The Wardrobe Theatre upgraded to a purpose-built new premises in Old Market. Sharing the building with the Old Market Assembly (from the team behind The Canteen), the Wardrobe Theatre are part of a new movement in the formerly neglected part of Bristol.
