Show of Strength
10 September 1998
Local company Show of Strength experiment with using the building as a theatre venue. The first ever theatre production in the Tobacco Factory is their A Journey to Bristol, a short 18th Century comedy set in the city performed in promenade with people following the action all around the building.
Not put off by the lack of available running water, electricity, heating or seating, Show of Strength put on work and help develop the venue for over five years.
