If you’ve ever wondered whether a career in the theatre, film or television industries could be for you, join us at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School this autumn to discover more about our degree programmes. Each 90-minute Twilight Session takes place at the Theatre School on the same day as one of our productions in a professional theatre venue, giving you the opportunity to see our students in action.

During your visit, you’ll have the chance to:
> Attend a 40-minute talk that introduces you to the Theatre School, covering our values and ethos, how we work, and why;
> Attend a 40-minute panel session where our current students will tell you more about life in a leading student city;
> Ask any questions about the audition or interview process, accommodation, or student support provision at the Theatre School.

Our Twilight Sessions are not intended to be degree-course specific but our student recruitment team will be on hand to answer any further questions about our training. The sessions are suitable for both prospective undergraduates and postgraduates.

The visit to the Theatre School will finish promptly at 5:30 pm. We then invite you to join us later in the evening at the Redgrave Theatre to watch a BOVTS production. Performances begin at 7:30 pm. You’ll get to see for yourself how students from our courses collaborate to present thrilling live performances for the Bristol public.

Please note that you must purchase your ticket separately for the evening theatre production. You are advised to book your ticket for the theatre show before making a booking for the Twilight Session at BOVTS.
