Etcetera Theatre

Stay up to date with special ticket offers & our latest shows Theatre-makers of all kinds, join our new artists mailing list

Welcome to the Etcetera Theatre - “one of London's best pub theatres” (the Guardian) - and host to a colossal variety of exciting, original, daring and critically acclaimed shows every single year.

The pub can get quite busy so make sure to let the bouncers know you are going to the theatre.

We give the most creative and innovative fringe theatre and comedy acts a springboard to launch themselves onto the London scene.

We're a hub for several of London's most exciting annual theatre festivals: a founding venue of the Camden Fringe, home of the London Horror Festival, creator of the Black Box Festival, and hosts of an Edinburgh Fringe preview season that frequently attracts some of the biggest names in stand-up and sketch comedy.

Our programme spans across everything from award winning theatre to thrilling new writing; cabaret, magic, comedy and musicals - no matter what kinds of shows excite you, you'll find them at the Etcetera.

Oh, and we're one of match.com's Top 10 Theatres for a Date in London - just in case you needed further convincing!

BLACK BOX FESTIVAL is back!

From the 08th to the 13th of January 2018 we will be offering the Etcetera space FOR FREE to selected companies in exchange for a straight box office split.

Applications are open until midnight on Sunday 26th November and selected companies will be contacted in December.

Like every year, Black Box's only purpose is to give performing companies a chance, a chance to try something new out, a chance to give a previous show another shot, a chance to simply get up and perform!

All styles are encouraged, nay, preferred! So whether your talent lies in theatre, dance, burlesque, comedy, performance art, puppeteering and/or anything else then we look forward to hearing from you and making this our most exciting edition yet!
