Our first visit. Went to see Fiddler on the roof which we had seen some years ago at The Savoy. Didn't quite know what to expect, especially with a musical, in such a small (140?) seater three sided auditorium. It worked really well. With the...More

We went to see Pack of Lies last weekend (13th October) at the Menier. The theatre is small with the audience in close proximity to the stage, even in the back row, which we were. There is good raking on the seats (no peering around...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

foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
