Bristol Old Vic, which claims to be the oldest continuously working theatre in the English-speaking world, is to introduce interactive experiences and tours to tell its 252-year history.

Aardman Studios, Bristol Archives and the University of Bristol have collaborated on the project, opening on Friday 9 November, which includes a sound corridor, historic posters, video projections and film.

The exhibition space will be open daily during theatre hours with twice-weekly guided tours.
