The Theatre on the Downs is a new pop-up theatre space for Bristol, celebrating live performance in the South West.
A collaboration with Breaking Bread, an experiment in safe outdoor dining set up in 2020 by Bristol-based events production company Team Love, with the aim of creating work for the hospitality industry.
Open from 7 August – 2 September, it will be a festival of theatre, family work, circus and poetry. The space is programmed and run by artists, creating employment and opportunity industry-wide. It’s The Wardrobe Ensemble’s most exciting and ambitious project yet and we can’t wait to welcome you!
