The Old Vic

In 1999 Robert Bourne and Sally Greene purchased The Old Vic theatre, and through the formation of a charitable trust they financed the extensive and urgent improvements aimed at re-establishing it as one of London’s leading theatres. By assembling a world-class team, which includes Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey as the theatre’s Artistic Director and impresario Sally Greene, this great landmark has been launched to unprecedented success and wide public acclaim.

A new campaign is to be announced to further restore the facilities within this listed building which we are supporting within our development plans for Waterloo.

We would like to thank our past and present Trustees, Lord Attenborough, Lord Bernstein, Sir Elton John CBE, Alan Banes, Stephen Daldry CBE, Joyce Hytner MBE, Kenneth Leet, and Nicholas Cooper, who have all played a vital role in the success of this important theatre.
