QEH Bristol


Drama & QEH Theatre

QEH Theatre is a striking modern building, with a comfortable three-sided auditorium seating 210, creating an intimate and dynamic atmosphere.

It provides a quality learning environment for the teaching of Drama and other performing arts such as Music and Dance.

The theatre is the home of the drama department where there are many large and small scale productions each year. Some of these involve nearby girls' schools and, in others, staff and students perform on stage together.

QEH has promoted exciting and innovative theatre, music, dance, comedy and poetry, particularly accessible to a school audience. There are regular productions from leading national and regional touring theatre companies.

Shows range from the classics – Shakespeare, Ibsen, Marlowe, Sophocles – to new plays. The emphasis is on promoting theatre and the Arts amongst QEH students, so visiting productions are relevant and profitable to their learning.

The Theatre has a large foyer with changing exhibitions, and a friendly bar. Patrons can park in the 24-hour car park opposite the Theatre. QEH has full facilities for disabled patrons, and strives to be as accessible as possible for everyone. QEH Theatre is also available as a conference facility.
