The Battersea Arts Centre ("BAC") is a Grade II* listed building near Clapham Junction railway station in Battersea, in the London Borough of Wandsworth that operates as a performance space specialising in theatre productions. It was formerly Battersea Town Hall. In March 2015, while a major programme of renovation works were underway, the Grand Hall was severely damaged by fire. Approximately 70% of the theatre, including the 200-capacity Council Chamber, the Scratch Bar and the Members Library, was saved from the fire and remains open.For Battersea Arts Centre and beyond, use our London online vacation planner to get the most from your London vacation.
Battersea Arts Centre Reviews
"WOW" What a perfect venue for a wedding. Really impressed with the venue and the service from start to finnish more »
What a great venue for catching up with friends. Not stuffy, not pompous, not overly expensive; just chilled, laid back, full of entertainment and great ambience. Will definitely be back!!!! more »
One of London's great venues for fringe theatre and performing arts. Always great value, full of surprises, and a wonderfully eccentric atmosphere pervades the many halls, corridors, lounges, theatres, and bars within the imposing Victorian structure. Thoroughly recommend going regularly.
Possibly my best theatre experience in my whole life. The production of Orpheus with Little Bulb Theatre was simply amazing. The humour was cleverly done, the props were designed with a minimum style but super effective due to actors’ acting skills. Every single actor could sing and play at least one instrument. A simple story, but was told with immense emotions of music. The music selection were a feast from classical to jazz to French jazz to soul to omg I can’t describe. I cried and I laughed. I don’t usually laugh at slap stick joke hence why they have a very clever humour style. I would love to go back and watch the same play any time again. The seating were simple folded chair but with super comfort to it. Highly recommend front row from row 5/6. Go for it.
