History

On 6th April 1972, the Bush Theatre was established above the Bush (a public house). The opening production was John Fowles’ The Collector.

In November 2010, it was announced that the Bush Theatre would move into the old Passmore Edwards Public Library building.  After the relocation, the Bush Theatre reopened with the “Sixty-Six Books”, a project which marked the 400th anniversary of the King James version with the production of 66 plays, one for each book of the Bible.

In Spring 2016, the Bush Theatre relocated its plays in spaces in and around Shepherd’s Bush and Notting Hill while the building underwent renovations and refurbishments.

In March 2017, the Bush Theatre reopened with a new entrance and front-of-house area and greater accessibility.
