About

The Wardrobe Theatre is a fringe studio venue and thriving arts hub in the heart of Bristol showcasing the best theatre-makers, companies and artists from around the UK since 2011.

Every year they welcome audiences of 35,000+ and stage 500+ performances. Their programme is a lovingly curated mix of theatre, comedy, storytelling, live music, poetry/spoken word, dance, puppetry, cabaret, drag, improvisation, new writing and family shows, with an emphasis on emerging artists and Bristol-based work. Regularly throughout the year they also produce/co-produce productions of their own with dynamic Bristol-based creative teams and companies, shows which often go on to tour nationally.

“The Wardrobe Theatre has arguably become the nucleus of Bristol’s fringe scene [with] its insatiable appetite to showcase vivacious new productions.” Bristol 24/7
