Bristol has a diverse cultural heritage, with comedians including Russell Howard and Lee Evans and street artist Banksy all hailing from the city. It is also the home of one of the most prestigious conservatoire drama schools outside of London, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Bristol theatre encompasses both commercial and fringe spaces, purpose-built venues and gems tucked away in pubs. The Bristol Hippodrome is the city’s largest theatre, and audiences can catch regular visits by Welsh National Opera as well as an annual pantomime. Many touring productions coming from London and beyond also visit the city, such as Les Misérables and SIX - both visiting in 2022. When it comes to choosing shows in Bristol, there’s something to cater for every taste.
