To us, great theatre is about great plays, great performances and great nights out from the moment you step through the door.
The Old Vic is one of the best known and best loved theatres in the world, synonymous with the greatest acting talent that Britain has ever produced from Laurence Olivier, Peggy Ashcroft, John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson to Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Albert Finney, and Peter O’Toole. This iconic 195-year-old building has a rich history of great performances and The Old Vic Theatre Company under the artistic leadership of Kevin Spacey, continues to attract the best creative talent from the UK and all over the world to tread its famous boards.

Through Old Vic New Voices we also nurture young actors, writers and directors, and work with schools and our neighbours to bring theatre to a wider audience.The Old Vic has no subsidy. Ticket sales alone are not enough to cover all of our costs, so the financial support of generous individuals, companies, trusts and foundations is vital to our existence.
