Bridewell Theatre

The Bridewell Theatre opened in 1994, breathing new life and purpose into a long derelict Victorian swimming pool.

Currently we are a 'receiving house'; just about anyone can hire the facilities and put on a show here. Our annual programme includes productions by amateurs, professionals, colleges, schools, opera companies, magicians, lecturers, the entire show business spectrum. Additionally, since 2005, we are home to Lunchbox, a bite-sized slot where local City workers can bring their own food and drink and enjoy a 45-minute performance, satisfying the mind as well as the appetite.
