Lot Essay

The Old Vic is an iconic theatre with a strong social mission, operating at the heart of its local community. For over 200 years this cultural landmark and independent not-for-profit charity, has provided inspiration for people from all walks of life to be entertained, to learn, and to engage with others around them.
The Old Vic can and wants to do more. But to do that they need to make space. Their solution is The Annex – a vibrant, five story creative arts hub which will enable them to double their education and outreach to 20,000 people each year; provide access to fully-equipped studio space for emerging talent, schools and local drama groups to develop work, training and skills; and ensure long term financial sustainability for The Old Vic.
The Old Vic is proud of its longstanding association with key British contemporary artists whom over the years have generously contributed their work in support of the theatre. The Old Vic would like to thank Charlotte Colbert, Philip Colbert, Ian Davenport, Antony Gormley, Chris Levine, Conrad Shawcross and Gavin Turk for their generous donations, offered across the First Open and Contemporary Edition auctions.
