Tobacco Factory Theatres produces and presents excellent art in unique, intimate spaces, including our Factory Theatre, as well as off site in Bristol and in venues across the country.
We present a jam-packed programme of diverse and exciting shows, workshops and events, from classic and contemporary theatre, to theatre for families, comedy, dance, music, opera and puppetry. We also programme an extensive programme of engagement, learning and participation opportunities for audiences, artists and young people.
Tobacco Factory Theatres has forged an inspirational path to becoming one of the country’s most respected venues in just 10 years. The diversity of the programme, combined with the astonishing average attendance capacity of 84%, make it one of the most well-attended, loved and popular theatres in the country.
Our vision for the period 2015 onwards marks a key moment in the theatre’s evolution and a step change in the level of our ambitions. We recognise that a truly great theatre is all about the consistent production of great shows and to achieve this we are investing ambitiously in more of our own productions and co-productions with key partners.

Recently, our Brewery Theatre closed for public performances due to changes in insurance and licensing demands. However, we have exciting plans for the future and a new second theatre space, alongside our Factory Theatre. You can read more about our Future Plans at the link below or by clicking here.
