The new Brewery Theatre


    A full air conditioning system is installed in the Factory Theatre auditorium.

    A derelict tyre and exhaust garage on North Street is purchased and, after a summer of redevelopment, The Brewery opens with a working bakery, a café, a sprung-floored dance studio and a fully equipped 90-seated auditorium.

    The new theatre hosts the first ever Bristol Festival of Puppetry, which is centred around the Tobacco Factory Theatre’s two venues.
