Tobacco Factory Theatres

The Tobacco Factory in Southville Bristol


The Tobacco Factory theatre is a dynamic, innovative and popular studio theatre located at the heart of Bedminster, one of the fastest growing areas in Bristol.

It is a hub of creation, development and learning, which produces and presents a diverse and exciting programme of theatre and other performing arts. It aims to be a cultural flagship for the local community, an innovative social and cultural hub and an inspirational model of urban renewal.

Each season the theatre produces a jam-packed programme in both the Factory and Brewery theatres, of diverse and exciting shows, workshops and events - from international comedy acts to opera, family shows to modern classics and timeless masterpieces. There is also an extensive programme of audience events, artist training and classes for their young audience. The theatre is made up of two performance spaces:

Tobacco Factory Theatre - a large, flexible stage area with tiered seating that can be arranged in numbers ways, makes the main theatre a very flexible performance space that suits everything from one-person plays to stand up and music events. 

Brewery Theatre - a beautiful and intimate 90-seat venue with a quirky and relaxed atmposphere. Just 150 metres down the road from the main Tobacco Factory building, the Brewery Theatre is a hugely important addition to both the Tobacco Factory theatre and to Bristol's theatre scene, allowing a wider variety of shows from the freshest and brightest talent around.

The landmark Tobacco Factory building is also home to the Tobacco Factory Cafe Bar.
