BAC (Battersea Arts Centre)


Battersea Arts Centre occupies an old town hall in the heart of Battersea and is renowned for making some of the most cutting-edge new theatre in the UK.

The birthplace of Jerry Springer the Opera and the first London venue to present Punchdrunk, BAC nurtures talented emerging artists and is renowned for making some of the most cutting-edge new work in the UK. BAC works with artists who question traditional forms of theatre and make work that often doesn’t start life with a script.

This is theatre that blurs genres, challenges your view of the world and thrives on experiment. BAC presents events that spill out of the building and onto the streets of London.

Seen/experienced two shows here: Fuel's "Ring", and Forced Entertainment's "The Coming Storm". Both were in different parts of the space, and utilized their locations well.

The venue's easy to get to - just a short walk from Clapham Junction station, or via bus. There is a modest bar/cafe downstairs to get a coffee or alcoholic beverage before the show. Limited selection of wine and beer...more

This place is a total gem!! I wasn't sure what to expect, but we'd purchased tickets to a comedy night so figured we'd make an evening of it and trek down to Battersea. I loooved the grandness of the front entrance, but rumor has it they're moving that to a side entrance.

The bar is really cute and well appointed. They only had bottles listed on the menu, but there are taps! Even though the...more
