The Bristol Old Vic theatre has announced an ambitious range of digital work running through to May 2021 to keep families entertained through the Spring and beyond, allowing stories to be shared and creativity to flourish in new ways once again.

The Spring Season for 2021 includes:

Swallows and Amazons – available for online rental
  • Bristol Old Vic Favourites Box Set
    The hugely successful online subscription season of five favourite shows from the last decade, seen by 25,000 people so far, extends until the end of April with extra live events announced for those who want to delve a little deeper into how the shows were made. With families in mind, these include Swallows and Amazons and The Night Autumn Turned to Winter which are shows especially for families and early years audiences, and are available for 48 hour rental for £4.50 until the end of April.
  • Suitable for all the family (from 12yr +)

Let’s… free workshops for young people
