Theatre

Offering theatre throughout the year – both as 'Lunchbox' and evening theatre, the Bridewell Theatre is a wonderful place to experience an eclectic range of plays, musicals and ballet, running through the whole spectrum, from classic to contemporary.

Our Resident Companies are Sedos and the London Ballet company.

Throughout the year Bridewell theatre often opens for its Lunchbox shows from 1pm on Tuesdays to Fridays: a fantastic opportunity to leave your desk and take a break from your work schedule. You're more than welcome to bring a packed lunch. Alternatively, tea, coffee or beer are available from the bar. Performances tend to last 45 minutes, so you're guaranteed to be back before your boss realises you are missing!

Booking tickets is an easy process and can be done online, or at the door. If you book in person before 11am on the day of the show, you will receive a £1 discount.

Unfortunately, if you're late, we can't let you in, so make sure you're on time!

We also offer a wide range of evening performances, which typically begin at 7:30pm on Tuesdays to Saturdays, often with a matinee performance at 2:30 – 3pm on the Saturday. Offering everything from magic shows to murder mysteries, there is a show to suit all tastes.
