We laughed until we cried. Five superb actors and one musician take on not only the how "Hamilton," but also the entire essence of Broadway. Clever lyrics and staging reference a number of current and past productions on the Great White Way. The vocals are...More

A very intimate and Cozy restaurant and theathre. The theathre is small, but has charm. It is about a 40 minute walk from Leicester Square. And you see alot of nice building along the way, especially on your way back, when the lighting is on....More

This show was an absolute joy. We saw the much hyped ‘Hamilton’ and enjoyed it, but felt it was not worth all the accolades received. SPAMILTON, however was professional, energetic, very funny, and thoroughly enjoyable, with a nod to so many musicals and stars. Thoroughly...More

Started the evening with a splendid dinner in the restaurant, then moved on to a side-splitting production of Spamilton. The quality of the food in the restaurant was a nice surprise, and the service was more then helpful. The play was a treat, well timed...More

This is one of the loveliest theatre you’ll ever get to go to. It’s small, often hosting pre west end plays, intimate and with a flair all of its own. It has a small restaurant alongside it, so even if you just grab a coffee...More

Been before but not for a while. I went to see the Gronholm Method which was great. I like this theatre, its relaxed, nice small venue, and I think all the seats have a good view. Well lit, good acoustics and helpful staff. I found...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

I think it depends on the show but I would suggest their website would be the best place to look.
