  • Visitor Information

An Off-West End theatre housed in a former underground parking garage in London Bridge, The Bunker is a small 110-seater studio theatre used to stage plays, musicals, dance, music, and a host of other performances. Four concrete pillars mark out the performance space and there's an eclectic mix of audience seating on three sides of the stage. A snug bar tucked into the corner means you can grab a drink an hour before the show. The Bunker also plays host to a variety of post-show events inspired by the main house production, including dance, plays in development, and spoken word pieces.
