In the historic city centre of Bristol in the UK, down a cobbled street lined with mismatched buildings, is the oldest continuously running theatre in the English-speaking world – the Bristol Old Vic. Built in 1766, and originally called the Theatre Royal, the building underwent a multi-million-pound refurbishment to mark its 250th anniversary. The work required detailed and careful design to ensure that the great Georgian auditorium – renovated in the first phase of the project – can serve the acoustic needs of a wide range of live theatre, music and dance.
