The Old Vic near Waterloo station in London is one of the cities most famous theatres:
The theatre was founded in 1818 by the actor William Barrymore as the Royal Coburg Theatre. In 1833 it was renamed the Royal Victorian Theatre after the heir to the throne Princess Victoria. In 1880, under the ownership of Emma Cons, it became The Royal Victoria Hall And Coffee Tavern and was run on “strict temperance lines”; by this time it was already known as the “Old Vic”.
Vicky (aka Vic), the youngest member of the Indigo Clothing client services team, who is sadly leaving us on Friday so she can have a break before continuing her studies at the University of Brighton, recently helped the Old Vic with their promotional clothing order. The irony wasn’t lost on us!
