From the Bristol Old Vic website: The Bristol Old Vic is celebrating its 250th birthday this year, making it the oldest continuously working theatre in the English speaking world. So, there will be celebrations commemorating its anniversary over the May Bank Holiday weekend. On May 29th they will hold their 250th Anniversary Gala
Whilst the full details of the night itself remain a tightly-lipped secret (for now!), you can expect appearances from a host of stars who have loved this theatre, including*:
Sir Tony Robinson
Of course, the asterisk means that the guest list is subject to change. I notice that Pippa Haywood’s name is there. She has worked with Patrick Malahide in both The One Game and a very excellent episode of Boon.
