Bristol Old Vic is a theatre company based at the Theatre Royal, Bristol, the oldest continually-operating theatre in the English-speaking world which was built during 1764–66. The adjacent Cooper’s Hall was built in 1743–44. Together, they are a Grade I listed building.

Gilbert-Ash carried out the demolition of part of the existing Grade I listed Coopers Hall building, creating new foyers and Front of House facilities, connecting the existing building with the new.

The refurbishment provided a Studio Theatre, backstage areas and administration accommodation, together with links to the Auditorium and Backstage areas.
