Bridewell Theatre London EC4Y 8EQ - Reviews
Bridewell Theatre is a thriving off-west end venue built over the City of London’s first swimming pool. This versatile space plays host to a range of production companies throughout the year and can also be transformed into a truly atmospheric ballroom, a magical cabaret venue or conference space. Early booking essential.
The Victorian glass lantern roof, viewing gallery and changing rooms remain in situ giving this historic venue a dramatic and surreal atmosphere. The tiled swimming pool itself is also still in place underneath the seating, accessible via a floor hatch.

The Tower Theatre Company’s new production delivers some good moments but overall is less successful than it could […]
An emotional roller-coaster. Actually, no, Happiness is really a roller-coaster about emotions. The roller-coaster bit is provided through a table on castors that gets violently rolled around Ann Holm Petersen’s excellent sterile-chic set design, whose transparent plastic chairs (love them, want one) are flung indiscriminately about the psychologist’s office with tornado-esque abandon. Yes, Lily Lowe-Myers’s […]
