The Bristol Shakespeare Festival is a Community Interest Company (CIC), founded in 2003 and run by a team of dedicated volunteers passionate about bringing the freshest, most exciting productions of Shakespeare’s plays to some of Bristol’s most beautiful and unusual spaces every summer during the month of July.
In previous years the very best national touring companies, including The Lord Chamberlain’s Men and Shakespeare’s Globe, have taken part alongside other exceptional companies, schools, youth groups, special educational needs and disability arts groups.
The Bristol Shakespeare Festival currently receives no public funding and is produced entirely by volunteers. We are therefore extremely grateful to our sponsors, partners and venues, whose support has enabled the Festival to grow over the years.
