Open House 2017

Sold out

For two days only you’re invited to explore the Bush Theatre in a guided tour as part of Open House London 2017.

You can book a free place to guarantee a time slot or drop into the building over the weekend at the times below.

Discover backstage of a world famous new writing theatre. We’ve recently refurbished the building in a £4.3m redevelopment by Haworth Tompkins Architects which added a brand new Studio, renovated the Attic to become a beautiful rehearsal room, and created a gorgeous outdoor terrace.

Open House London celebrates all that is best about the capital’s buildings, places and neighbourhoods. Every September, it gives a unique opportunity to get out and under the skin of London’s amazing architecture, with over 800 buildings of all kinds opening their doors to everyone – all for free.

On the Saturday of Open House (Sat 16 Sep) you can book tickets for three performances as part of Nassim Plays, a retrospective of work by the Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour. The global sensation White Rabbit Red Rabbit is at 2.30pm and 7.30pm. Edinburgh Fringe smash hit and Fringe First 2017 winner Nassim is at 5pm.
