Theatre Collection Library

Theatre Collection Library The Theatre Collection library has over 20,000 books and more than 300 journal titles on all aspects of theatre.

Our books and journals are catalogued on the University of Bristol Library catalogue.There is also a quick list of journals.


The majority of our books are on open access for browsing, but as they act as a key to the Theatre Collection archives, they must be available to researchers at all times, and are therefore reference only and are not to be taken out of the Theatre Collection except for photocopying with the permission of the staff. Photocopying facilities are available in the Drama Department.

We also have a large collection of Rare Books which are held in our strong-rooms and are available to view on request.
