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.

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
