Welcome to today’s celebration of London theatre spaces. Today I’m taking a look at those beginning with ‘M’.
Menier Chocolate Factory
The Menier is based in an 1870s former factory building on Southwark Street, and since opening in 2004 has gained a reputation for presenting musical revivals. Run by artistic director David Babani, the building also has a small restaurant on the ground floor as you enter the building.
Based in Edmonton, the Millfield Theatre forms part of Millfield Arts Centre, along with the Dugdale in Enfield. Opened in 1988, it underwent restoration in 2009 when the main house was renamed the Bruce Forsyth Auditorium. Most shows at the Millfield are professional productions.
Museum of Comedy
A sister venue to the Leicester Square Theatre, the Museum of Comedy is located in the crypt of the St George’s church in Bloomsbury. The museum and performance space, seating 100, opened in 2014.
