Younger sister theatre of the Old Vic, showcasing emerging talent and young, rising actors.
One of London's most exciting theatres, with a great bar/restaurant out front - a good place to meet up for a cocktail even if you aren't catching a show.
The Young Vic is a theatre on the Cut, located near the South Bank, in the London Borough of Lambeth. Kwame Kwei-Armah has been the theatre's artistic director since February 2018, succeeding David Lan. Its philosophy is to "produce great plays for great audiences now and in the future"
Great plays and front-row seats at affordable prices - if you book in advance.
A small theatre where all the seating has good angles. Reasonable ticket prices and performances by extremely talented people. There is also a food and drink area.
“You can often catch a play with a well-known actor at this Waterloo institution. Both classic and modern productions on offer.”
“The Cut‘s most famous pub, Anchor & Hope, has been a beacon for gastropub food for ages. People descend from all over south London on a Sunday for one of its roasts: either head there early or try out of peak hours to secure a table. It’s a seasonal British menu with inventive twists on pub classics like foie gras ballotine, brioche and pickled cherries and stuffed Scottish veal breast, mushrooms, kale and mashed potatoes.”
“The BFI IMAX is an IMAX cinema in the South Bank district of London, just north of Waterloo station. It is owned by the British Film Institute and since July 2012 has been operated by Odeon Cinemas. The BFI London IMAX is the largest cinema screen in Britain. It measures 26m by 20m with a total screen size of 520m². The auditorium seats 485.”
“The NT is part of a complex of buildings on the South Bank of the Thames. It is a great place to spend time in comfort with a coffee and cake, listening to free live music, especially jazz. Nice cafe and shop, some restaurants in case you want a full meal. Lots of paid parking under cover. Very accessible. Great bookstall on the embankment just outside the National Film Theatre.”
