Bristol’s original theatre above a pub, and a mighty fine pub at that
A look at the posters plastering the walls of the corridor on your way up to the theatre above the Alma Tavern in Clifton reveals the sheer diversity of the hundreds of productions that have graced this space – made up of two former function rooms knocked together – since it opened in 1997.
They pack them in tight here and it’s advisable to wear as few clothes as you can (as often the actors on the tiny stage do, or don’t) because the theatre can get stiflingly hot.
With strong ties to many local theatre companies, the Alma is a place to discover both new writing and acting talent, often from the nearby Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Enjoy a drink in the pub downstairs prior to a show; just make sure you don’t miss the tinkle of the little bell indicating that it’s almost time for curtain up.
