OV200 Support

To mark our 200th birthday this year, we are gathering together a group of 200 individuals to take part in our celebrations and get behind the scenes at one of London’s greatest theatres, while donating towards our Bicentenary.

The first 200 people to take up the opportunity at £200 will be invited to:

Champagne brunch on The Old Vic stage, joined by Bicentenary Ambassador, Sir Derek Jacobi

Join us on Saturday 22 September from 10.30am–12pm for a unique occasion on our iconic stage. Raise a toast to our beloved Old Vic with Sir Derek Jacobi, one of the UK’s best-loved and most renowned Shakespearean actors, who will share memories from the years he spent working with Laurence Olivier’s company at the theatre. Then be whisked off on a curated tour of the building, highlighting its varied past and present.

Access to a tech, understudy or dress rehearsal for one of our Bicentenary Season shows

Look behind the scenes and be there when our cast and creatives get ready for the first night of a play. Share the electricity of bringing a brand new play onto the stage and cheer on our company as they rehearse for their debut performance in front of an audience.

Acknowledgement as an OV200 supporter on our Old Vic 200 website and receipt of an OV200  Bicentenary Certificate

All this beautifully wrapped up in a special OV200 gift package to enjoy or pass on to a loved one. By purchasing this gift and donating you will be helping The Old Vic, an independent charity with no regular public subsidy, to continue to thrive, entertain audiences and deliver inspiring education, talent, employability and outreach programmes for the next 200 years.

Please find details of the upcoming OV200 events here. More events will be announced to OV200 supporters as and when they are confirmed.
