University of Bristol Theatre Collection

The Theatre Collection is an accredited museum and one of the world's largest archives of British theatre and Live Art.

Founded in 1951 to serve the first UK university Drama Department, our collections cover the period from 1572 to the 21st century and our visitors include everyone from international scholars to family historians.

Our collections are stored over two sites, so to avoid disappointment, please contact us on in advance of your visit.

Key collections include the Mander & Mitchenson Collection, London Old Vic archive, Bristol Old Vic archive and the Live Art Archives. For a full list of archives see:
