In 1998, a disused warehouse on Union Street was converting into a theatre. This was to be the original site of the Union Theatre. The venue was located under the arches of Southwark Station and when the site was wanted for redevelopment purposes by Network Rail, a campaign began to save the space. Eventually, the theatre was relocated to a site across the road in 2016.
The Union Theatre has played host to many successful productions, most notably: Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd, Adler and Ross’ The Pajama Game, Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado, and Once Upon A Time At The Adelphi.
The Union Theatre is a small venue located on Union Street. Waterloo Station, Borough High Street and the Borough Food Market are all within 10 minutes’ walk of the theatre.
