“We were lucky enough to bring our show BLUE to the Lion and Unicorn Theatre this year, and since our first meeting with David (the AD) we felt consistently encouraged, supported and welcomed in the L+U family.
The team worked incredibly hard to help us promote our show and were always ready with advice and tips. David and the team were clearly passionate about good theatre, making opportunities for as many small theatre companies as possible and for curating a collective of artists eager to make theatre together and support one another.
The box office deal was transparent from the start and the venue itself is well equipped and well suited to the shows they program.
We want to bring shows back here every year, now we just have to make em!”

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 that includes Senior Duty Managers Anthony Fagan & Alexander Knott, Technical Manager Mitchell Reeve and Advisory Director Lauren Gauge. 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.
