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 between 1764–66. The adjacent Cooper’s Hall was built in 1743–44. Together, they are a Grade I listed building.

Gilbert-Ash carried out partial demolition of the existing Grade I listed Coopers Hall building, creating new foyers and front of house facilities, connecting the existing building with the new, providing a new studio theatre, new backstage areas and offices and links to the existing auditorium and backstage areas.
