The Etcetera is an award-winning pub theatre, established in 1986. For nearly thirty years,it has provided an essential springboard for theatre companies, comedians and performers looking to launch themselves into the arts industry. Its reputation for supporting new artists has also earned us the Guinness Ingenuity Award for Pub Theatre in 1996, and a nomination for the Peter Brook Empty Space Award.
Alongside supporting new theatre-makers, it is also well known for introducing new comedy to the London scene. From providing space for brand new acts to cut their teeth through to hosting warm up shows from UK's biggest names - including Simon Amstell, Russell Brand, Al Murray, Milton Jones, Mark Thomas, Robin Ince, We Are Klang, Bill Bailey, Jerry Sadowitz, Russell Howard and Richard Herring.
In recent years, the Etcetera has become a hub for several London theatre festivals, including the Camden Fringe and the London Horror Festival. With the launch of our annual Black Box Festival (formerly PNPA Festival), it reaffirmed its commitment to creating a strong platform for the capital's upcoming theatre makers.
