BulfordVisits to fringe theatres in and around central London

Group Co-ordinator: Chris Bulford (click to contact)

Evenings on varying days of the week. Monthly for meetings to chat over what we've seen.

We go to a range of theatres: there are of course a fair few in and around Islington, but we go wider than that as well.

London has more fringe theatres than any other city in the world and Islington has many of them. The fringe theatre group goes to a wide range of fringe plays often but not only in Islington and nearby venues.  For example the King's Head, Old Red Lion, Park, Upstairs at the Gatehouse, Southwark Playhouse, Soho, Arcola. We have a wide range of tastes from the classical to the very modern, drama, comedy and cabaret. Because we try to visit three or four times a month there is always plenty of choice. Notice of planned visits is sent out to group members regularly with play details and dates.

The group is very informal. Each member buys their own ticket, between £12 and £25, which is incredibly good value, and just turns up at the theatre. All visits are in the evening and we meet in the bar about half an hour or so before curtain (if there is one)-up.

We also meet monthly for a morning coffee in the Park Theatre café and have a chat about anything we like that is vaguely related to the theatre.
