Part of Clifton College, this large theatre is the place to see plays, spoken word and offbeat film screenings

It’s an indication of what’s good and what’s not so good in Bristol that the city’s fourth largest theatre is part of Clifton College, the prestigious boarding school.

Twenty years after it was first built it in 1966, the school named the theatre after Sir Michael Redgrave, the former student who presided at its opening, and it's since become the go-to space for the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.

As well as school productions, the Redgrave is now a theatre for hire, hosting many am-dram shows, as well as becoming the biggest venue yet for the Bristol Bad Film Club, screening so-bad-they’re-good movies for a dedicated and enthusiastic crowd.

With a design based on the Mermaid Theatre in London, the Redgrave has the distinction of being the first purpose-built school theatre in the country.
