About us
 
The Alma Tavern Theatre first opened its doors in 1997 when the two grotty function rooms above the pub were transformed into a small but perfectly formed theatre. The studio space accommodates 50 people in tiered seating so everyone has a pretty good view of the stage. And, of course, you can take your drink into the theatre. Well, it wouldn't be a proper pub theatre without that, would it?

The last ten years have seen hundreds of productions, of which nearly 50 have been world premieres. There have been classics, comedies, dramas, absurdist plays, modern plays, new plays, plays with no words and even plays in Latvian. So if you've never been along to the theatre, you've missed a lot!

But don't worry - there's always plenty of exciting stuff coming up. Every autumn Theatre West takes over with ten weeks of new writing and through the rest of the year there's a vibrant mix of local and touring companies. Fragile Theatre Partnership, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, SWAN and Plain Clothes are all regular visitors. So have a look at what's coming up and make a date to visit the Alma Tavern Theatre soon.
