Opened in 1966 by Clifton College, eager volunteer pupils helped to complete the building before it became one of the must-visit venues of the city. It wasn’t until the 1970s that the decision was made to hire the theatre out to local amateur dramatic groups - since then the theatre’s repertoire has continued to grow. Today, the theatre showcases an impressive array of operas, musicals, comedy, theatre and dance.
With an impressive 315-seat auditorium and excellent acoustics and lighting, a visit to the Redgrave Theatre is a treat for everybody, and a favourite Bristolian past-time.
Close to the Clifton Suspension Bridge and Clifton Village, the Redgrave theatre is the perfect spot to spend an evening after a day visiting the sites of the area.
