Bristol Old Vic has been successful in its bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund, which has awarded the organisation initial funding to create a landmark project during our 250th anniversary, which will kick-start our plans to transform this wonderful theatre into an internationally-significant heritage destination.
A development grant of £220,500 has been awarded that will support a nine-month period of development work in preparation for the full roll-out of the project, which will herald a new era for the theatre.  Once this initial work is complete, Bristol Old Vic will submit an application for a confirmed grant of £2.26million, with both phases totalling nearly £2.5m.
