Building Tours

Sold out

Explore the new Bush Theatre one year on following our £4.3 million redevelopment.

Our architects, Haworth Tompkins, won the RIBA Stirling Prize for Liverpool Everyman. We were nominated for The Stage Theatre Building of the Year 2017 and awarded highly commended in the AJ Retrofit award for Cultural Buildings.

Hear the story of how over 2016 the Bush Theatre transformed into an accessible and sustainable modern theatre for the future with more room for artists. Plus, learn about the history of the building – the Old Library of Shepherd’s Bush – and our journey over the last year.

You’ll get to see inside the new Studio and refurbished Theatre, backstage into the dressing rooms and get a sneak peek of companies in rehearsals. There are bright new offices and you’ll visit the room where our writers will pen their plays, where one of our playwrights will be at work.

The Bush Theatre is fully accessible. You can find out about what’s in each space and where everything is on our facilities page here.

Ambreen Razia: ‘Show the West the pain they’ve caused…the colonial trauma inflicted on your ancestors’

Monday – ‘I hid his firearms’ she said through her chestnut eyes, her finger tips lightly touching one another, blonde highlights through her Pakistani hair, each strand telling me who she used to be. ‘This country’s failed me’, her words bouncing off her majesty’s walls, I sit opposite her with my name, she sits opposite…

the lonely creative. by Robyn London

I have spent my life immersed in creativity.  As a guide, passion or perhaps what others may interpret as an unrealistic dream.  It is embedded within my earliest memories. It has nurtured my soul. There is beauty in the moments of creativity that healed parts of me, that I didn’t realise were broken. Memories of…

Although our theatre is closed, we are still committed to finding ways…
