Earl's Court or West Brompton
The pub opens one hour before the performance for weekday matinees.
The Finborough Theatre is in the West Brompton area of London, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The theatre presents a varied programme of work which includes UK and world premieres of new plays; the venue has always been a supporter of new writing. The Finborough Theatre is an award-winning venue that is recognised as one of the best Off-West End theatres in London and continues to build on this reputation with the events it presents today.The building was originally designed in 1868 as a public house by George Godwin. The additional space above the theatre was converted into a theatre by June Abbot in 1980, and saw many famous artists grace its stages during its first decade, including Clive Barker, Kathy Burke, Ken Campbell, Mark Rylance and Clare Dowie.This rich history of new writing continued into the next two decades, and has seen many of the great plays presented by resident theatre companies transfer to major theatres like the Royal Court. There are almost too many talented names that have had theatre premieres at the Finborough Theatre to mention. Some notable names include Rachel Weisz, David Mamet, James Graham, and the final premiere performance of the late John Bennett.
