Tobacco Factory Theatres produces and presents incredible theatre in our intimate spaces in our iconic Bristol building, 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. The diversity of the programme, combined with the astonishing average attendance capacity of 80%, 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.

Our 2018 building project will completely transform Tobacco Factory Theatres including the creation of a brand new studio theatre, refurbished backstage and dressing rooms and an extended, improved front of house and bar. Find out more about our amazing plans and Make Your Mark.
