The Redgrave Theatre in Bristol was built in 1966 and was originally known as the Clifton College Theatre. The design was based on the Mermaid Theatre in London and was the first purpose built school theatre in the country. The theatre was officially opened by the actor Sir Michael Redgrave and after his death in 1985 the building was renamed ‘The Redgrave Theatre’ in his honour. The Theatre plays host to a variety of professional touring companies, comedians, film societies, music concerts and dance pieces as well as amateur productions.
