Theatre In North West London
When you think of London theatre you will usually think
of the bright lights of the West End, but north west London
has theatres which can rival the West for stage entertainment.
For a simulating evening of theatre you could see what’s
on at the Tricycle Theatre [map].
Productions at this venue tend be topical or political
but are generated by known writers as well as up-and-coming
Irish, Afro-Caribbean, Jewish and Asian writers who appeal
to the local community. Established in 1980, the theatre
also conducts workshops and education programmes.
With over 70 years worth of summer performances under
its belt, you are sure to be well entertained at the Open
Air Theatre [map] in Regents Park. Vivien Leigh, Dame Judi Dench, Ralph
Fiennes and Martin Clunes have all graced this theatre's
varied programme of events.
Performances can be seen from the end of May to early
September when the British weather will hopefully be on
its best behaviour.
Fresh, innovative work and the occasional classic revival
is what you’ll find at Hampstead’s New
End Theatre [map].
This venue has recently attracted David Soul and Jerry
Hall and continues to stage a programme that could surprise
and impress you.
For something a little more light-hearted you can head
to the Etcetera Theatre [map],
NW1. Here you probably come across young actors improvising
for comic and/or dramatic effect but this pub theatre
has a lot of alternative performances on offer.
Northwest London is also home to Hampstead Theatre
[map] , Theatro Technis [map] and the Cockpit Theatre [map],
