The new Brewery Theatre
10 September 2009
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.
