    About us

    At Tobacco Factory Theatres, we provide a home of welcome and wonder for creative adventures and human connection, for incredible theatre and opportunities to learn and exchange ideas.

    We present in-house productions and touring shows to up over 50,000 people each year, and we support and commission new work by independent artists. We are proud to offer creative learning and participation opportunities to 3,000 local people each year, with 200 children and adults attending courses at the theatre every week.

    We work alongside inspirational resident artists and facilitators, who help shape our plans and programmes, and a community of 300 Artist Members who participate in regular meet-ups and events.

    Over the next decade, we want to build on our achievements of the last 20 years:

    • developing our reputation as a world-class centre for new work
    • growing impact, relevance, accessibility & quality across all we do
    • collaborating to build a vibrant & inclusive cultural scene for Bristol & the South West
    • improving representation & working culture within the theatre industry
    • consolidating a business model that supports our artistic and charitable ambitions
