Find out how the Bristol Old Vic plans to protect and share the heritage of Britain’s oldest theatre and bring its archive to life. The project, which involves a partnership between Bristol Old Vic, the University of Bristol Theatre Collection and Bristol Record Office, will use a range of techniques – from heritage animateurs, to digital innovation – to offer new ways of presenting the theatre’s long and fascinating history. An archivist, curator and outreach producer will tell you how it’s all going to happen.
