Join us for poetry, music and the first Bush Theatre Pub Quiz.

This winter the Bush Theatre is providing you with plenty of reasons to escape the cold in our cosy theatre bar and script library.

Test your knowledge at our brand new Bush Theatre pub quiz, hosted by playwright Jack Albert Cook; take to the mic and discover a new favourite poet at our Pen-Ting: West nights; or dance the night away with Rai the DJ.

We’ll also be serving up a menu of freshly cooked pizzas, winter soups and snacks, and you can expect show-themed cocktails and winter warmers among our wide choice of drinks.

Work Experience Diary: Yeunjin

Work Experience at the Bush theatre – Yeunjin Kim To describe the work experience at the Bush theatre, I need all the splendid words that I know in English. I had my work experience for one week and it changed me a lot. As an international student in London, it wasn’t easy to find out…
