Menier Chocolate Factory

New theatre to open in a disused London Bridge car park

A former underground car park under the Menier Chocolate factory will be transformed into a trendy 110-seat theatre, opening next month.

Named the Bunker, the renovated space will include an auditorium, bar, dressing rooms and office space.

The creatives behind the project are Executive Producer Joel Fisher and Artistic Director Joshua McTaggart.

Joel is particularly pleased with the location of their new venture: "This part of London is quickly becoming a cultural hub with developments at Tate Modern and the Globe and the London Theatre Company taking up residency at One Tower Bridge, and The Bunker joins this cultural movement."

Artistic Director, Joshua McTaggart, explains his vision for the Bunker being more than just a place to watch plays. He says: "The Bunker isn’t a place where you would leave straight after a show but rather a place that you could hang around in, meet the creatives involved and talk about the piece with your peers. In a way, it’s about creating a community who want to discuss what they have seen and debate what it means to them."

The venue opens on the 12th October with a performance of Skin a Cat, tickets are available from Time Out.
