The arts and humanities excel at Bristol. Resources and opportunities provided by donations are helping talented departments become even more successful.
Bristol was the first UK university to introduce the study of drama. Since its pioneering beginnings in 1947, the department has nurtured and informed the world of theatre, film and television in many significant ways. What’s more, the University’s Theatre Collection, an Accredited Museum, has protected the archival heritage of British professional theatre and made it accessible to generations of practitioners and scholars alike. It continues to do so today and is open to all.
Talented students, researchers and creative professionals all thrive in this unique environment, but we need your support to enable us to constantly improve the collection’s accessibility, and to provide the best possible teaching and learning spaces and equipment.
