The Old Vic, London

Since the Old Vic was built in 1818 on its location on the corner of both The Cut and Waterloo Road it has gone through many different incarnations, it has been home to the National Theatre and Sadlers Wells.

First known as the Royal Coburg Theatre, the venue would eventually become the Old Vic by the end of the 19th century, with the Young Vic later opening in 1970. With compelling productions regularly entertaining theatregoers, it is also a Grade II* listed building, drawing crowds away from the main hub of Theatreland to see a show south of the river.

Hosting a variety of shows, it has also had many artistic directors in charge of productions. Currently, the artistic director is Matthew Warchus who took over the role in 2015. In 2019, the theatre was home to an exciting bill of productions including The American Clock and All My Sons in something of an Arthur Miller double bill.

There are two entrances to the Old Vic: one on The Cut and the other on Waterloo Road, which is an accessible entrance. In 2019, 'Penny', an accessible basement cafe and bar was opened, offering drinks, sandwiches and snacks.
