The Bloomsbury Theatre is owned and operated by University College London and was officially opened in 1968 as The Central Collegiate Building Auditorium, this was soon changed to The Collegiate Theatre. It was renamed in 1982 as The Bloomsbury Theatre to reflect its geographical location as well as the artistic associations of the name. It was closed in 2015 for refurbishment and reopened November 2018.

With its relaxed atmosphere and stunning auditorium the theatre has gained a reputation in a number of fields over its lifetime, from small scale opera work to innovative stand-up comedy. It provided an early stage for some of this country's greatest comedy talent including Lily Savage, Eddie Izzard, Jo Brand, Jeremy Hardy, Mel & Sue, John Shuttleworth and Sooty! Recently top name comedians such as Ricky Gervais, Jimmy Carr and Harry Hill have chosen the Bloomsbury Theatre as a venue for their DVD recordings. The Bloomsbury also hosts many music events such as Adele, the Zombies and Ray Davies.
