Hidden away in the beautiful suburb of Clifton the Redgrave Theatre is one of Bristol’s most popular theatres hosting a wide variety of productions including comedians, children’s shows, book signings/talks, dance and film. The buildings tiered 315 seat auditorium and flat stage create an intimate space with excellent sight-lines and good all round acoustics.
Built in 1966 the Redgrave was originally known simply as the ‘Clifton College Theatre’. The design was based on the Mermaid Theatre in London and was the first purpose built school theatre in the country. The theatre was officially opened by the actor Sir Michael Redgrave – an ex-student of the college. After Sir Michael’s death in 1985 the building was renamed ‘The Redgrave Theatre’ in his honour.
