The Old Vic
The Old Vic has a varied history going back to the early 19th Century when it first opened in 1818. The Old Vic has a tradition of great performances, social engagement and nurturing creative talent. We receive no regular public subsidy and are entirely dependent on box office revenue and voluntary income. Illuminating the Future is our campaign to secure The Old Vic for generations to come. We will do this by restoring our beautiful and historic theatre building, and by building an Endowment to ensure our financial sustainability.
