Churchill Theatre, Bromley

The Churchill Theatre is a 785 seat ‘Number 1’ touring theatre, presenting a mixed programme of drama, musicals, ballet, dance, pantomime, amateur productions and children’s shows. It is open throughout the year, other than – typically – a 2 week closure for maintenance in August, and Easter Sunday and Christmas Day. It is currently operated by the Ambassador Theatre Group on behalf of Bromley Council.


The Churchill is a good, mainstream venue presenting a broad programme including some high quality children’s shows such as ‘The Tiger that Came to Tea’ or ‘Ben and Hollie’, for example. It also has a good reputation for its annual pantomime, which is of the traditional commercial variety. It has a busy Creative Learning department which offers participatory activities for all ages, including drama classes and workshops associated with the shows. These are well worth checking out, and a bit of a hidden gem. The building has lots of steps, so not that easy with a buggy, but you can get to the main foyer and the Circle with level access from the High Street.
