About us

In the centre of Brislington village lies the three hundred year old White Hart Hotel, now transformed into White Hart Lodge, home of the Bristol School of Performing Arts. The school moved into its new headquarters just over five years ago and since then has continued to build on its reputation of being Bristol’s oldest, largest and most professionally connected young peoples’ theatre school in the West Country.

The building houses several studios including two dance studios, a music room, wardrobe department, fully equipped in-house theatre, parents’ coffee bar and a free car park! Future plans include the addition of a purpose-built sound/recording studio.

The School enyoys a particularly close association with the Bristol Hippodrome and provides young performers to join professional touring productions visiting this theatre as well as the Bath Theatre Royal and the region’s other major theatres.

The School is extremely proud of the fact that many faces from the professional world are patrons of BSPA:

Vanessa Redgrave, Bill Kenwright and Kevin Wood (Head of the pantomime wing of First Family Entertainments) and Ken Dodd.
