News for 2016 - our first of the year!

We are proud to announce that our funding application to Arts Council England for Grants for the Arts funding has been successful.

This funding is for creating new work to celebrate 25 years of making theatre and to look at how Firebird wants to develop over the next few years.
As work develops, we will keep you updated and let you know our plans.

We are very much hoping to take part in Bristol Old Vic’s 250th birthday celebrations in May 2016 and a lot of ideas for our contribution to these came from our own Annual General Meeting held on 5th December.

The Company presented small excerpts from every one of their productions since 1990 at the AGM and we would like to try to replicate these in some way for the Old Vic’s Birthday Weekend.

Also, at the AGM, Antigoni, one of the Firebird trustees, produced a lovely cake with the Firebird logo and 25 years in icing to decorate it.

Here are some photographs from the Annual General Meeting.
