New Venue


In partnership with the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, the Bush Theatre has secured an 125 year lease on the old Shepherds Bush Library - a spacious, historic and beautiful building in the heart of the community which allows the Theatre to expand its capacity for audience members, host its supporters in a café bar and increase its work in the community through additional activity.


All eyes will be on the Bush during 2011-12, as this much loved local theatre and international institution, opens its doors and unveils its new venue.
