History of The Bloomsbury Theatre 

The Bloomsbury Theatre is a creative venue where ideas burst to life. The Bloomsbury Theatre first opened its doors in 1968 and was originally named Central Collegiate Building Auditorium. It was later renamed to the Collegiate Theatre and was owned by University College London (UCL), in 1982 it came to be the iconic Bloomsbury Theatre that it is known as today. 

The Bloomsbury Theatre in the present day 

Over the years, iconic artists have entertained audiences at The Bloomsbury Theatre, including: Ricky Gervais, Adele, Jo Brand and American Jazz artists Gregory Porter. Renowned comedian David Walliams has been a regular at The Bloomsbury Theatre over the years, with productions such as Awful Auntie and Gangsta Granny.

Fifty years after its debut performance, in 2019, the venue underwent a large renovation project to construct a mesmerising main auditorium with a tremendous and luxurious 500 seat capacity as well as a smaller more intimate sized studio. Over three years, a detailed plan was laid out for the theatre, with its original walls and brick foyers being renovated alongside every inch of the building receiving a modern and stylistic upgrade. From the carpets to the seats and even the dressing rooms, Bloomsbury Theatre’s makeover was a wild success.
