We make theatre for families
and for people living in care homes.

"The work we do with Brave Bold Drama is as important as the work we do with the Bristol Old Vic."

Dr Jan Wozniak, Department of Theatre, University of Bristol

“Brave Bold Drama connects with its audience and has great outreach.
Doing something positive . . . a very impressive organisation.”

We work with south-west artists to provide opportunities for people of all ages to enjoy their own creativity.

We work to dismantle barriers that can prevent people from accessing the arts and exploring new cultures.
