“The Bridge House Theatre opened in 2014 and Luke Adamson took over as Artistic Director and relaunched the theatre in 2021. Our programme features shows from established small-scale companies as well as offering opportunities for emerging theatre-makers. The shows are entertaining and socially conscious and all offer opportunities to, and representation of, groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the theatre world. This includes but is not limited to: Working class artists, Artists from the Global Majority, Non binary or gender fluid artists, LGBTQ+ Artists.
"such an amazing theatre filled with the most supportive, wonderful people" - Nieve Hearity, Mummylogues 2021
Our adaptable 60 seat black box theatre offers a wealth of options for creatives and a chance for each production to completely transform the space. Our audience can be transformed into: thrust, traverse, in-the-round, and traditional end-on. The lighting rig is entirely customisable and our foyer and green room offer additional, unconventional performance areas.
Our Pricing Structure
“Our ticket pricing structure is a little different to what you may be used to. Instead of offering ‘Full Price’ and ‘Concession’ tickets we offer a ‘Standard’ ticket price with the options to pay more if you can afford it or pay less if you can’t.
Those of us with a larger amount of disposable income may be able to buy a ticket at the higher rate, meaning that those of us struggling with lower income or a particularly lean month can still come and see the show without having to worry if they qualify for a concession.
As a completely unfunded venue our ticket sales are our primary source of income so we ask that you think honestly and genuinely about what you can afford rather than just going for the cheapest option. This type of scheme has been piloted at other venues and has actually seen ticket revenue increase, it also makes the work more accessible to all areas of society.”
