Open House 2018

Sold out

For two days only you’re invited to explore the Bush Theatre in a guided tour as part of Open House London 2018.

You can book a free place to guarantee a time slot or drop into the building over the weekend for additional tours and to explore the building.

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 22 Sep) you can book tickets for the 1.30pm or 7pm performance of An Adventure, an epic, technicolour love story from one of the country’s most promising young writers about the people who journeyed to British shores.
