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 design and construction of Front of House areas within Coopers’ Hall, including the demolition of part of the existing building, new foyers and Front of House facilities, redevelopment and refurbishment of the Grade I listed Coopers Hall.

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