The Lion & Unicorn Theatre is a 60-seat black box studio theatre based above the Lion & Unicorn pub at the heart of Kentish Town, with Camden Town just a stone’s throw away.

The venue will provide a great home for the best in fringe theatre talent that London has to offer and we are keen to provide a warm, nurturing and brilliant experience for both theatremakers and audiences alike. The new venue is led by Artistic Director David Brady with a brand new team of fringe theatre creatives. In addition, the theatre will support new writing, as well as provide opportunities for associate artists and companies who will be announced shortly.

The Lion & Unicorn pub offers a brilliant pre and post show experience, with premium beers, wines and spirits as well as a fantastic and varied food menu offering great pub food. For a night of culture and excellent hospitality, there is no better place to spend an evening than at one of London’s most well-respected pub theatres
