Your Old Vic Stories


Stories have been at the heart of everything we do for almost 200 years and have worked their way into the fabric of our iconic building.

We now urgently want to hear your Old Vic stories. Over the next month, we will be selecting the most inspiring, funny and illuminating memories to feature in our bicentenary celebrations. Did a relative of yours perform here? Do you have a throwback theatre programme? Did you get to see Olivier perform? Has The Old Vic helped shape the person you are today? Did you lock eyes with your soulmate across row C of the stalls?

Whether you have a story from 1943 or 2013, we’d love to hear from you. Email, tweet, post, call, write or just pop in for a chat – here are all the ways you can reach us:

TWITTER: tweet or direct message @oldvictheatre using #OV200

FACEBOOK: post, message or mention @OldVicTheatre

INSTAGRAM: share your picture and tag @oldvictheatre using #OV200


WRITE: Old Vic Stories, The Old Vic, The Cut, London, SE1 8NB

Remember – the most intriguing stories will be selected as part of our bicentenary celebrations.
