Bristol Old Vic Theatre School (BOVTS) attracts the very best talent in students and staff, and our courses are recognised nationally and internationally as a benchmark of quality in professional acting, technical, production and management training.


Bristol Old Vic Theatre School consists of three sites:

  • The main site, which is housed in three Edwardian buildings on the edge of the beautiful Clifton Downs, Bristol, UK.
  • Christchurch Studio, an ex-BBC recording studio bought by the school in 2001. It was the BBC flagship radio drama studio for many years.
  • Our workshop on Sheene Road, the school's purpose built scenic art and construction workshop, designed for set construction and the painting of large scale scenery.
