Tea House Theatre

Winner of Time Out Love London Awards 2014

We are based in an old Victorian public house that opened in 1886 on the site of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens; immortalised as the ‘Vanity Fair’ in Thackeray’s eponymous novel.

We serve some of the best loose leaf teas available, proper sandwiches and homemade cakes; not to mention the best full English breakfast in London. Our teas have individual subtle flavours which would be overpowered by the instant, coarse, hit of coffee, so we do not sell it.

We make our own marmalade and jams, all for sale by the jar and all our teas can be bought by the ounce. Our meat comes from our local butcher and our fruit and vegetables from the local market gardens around us.

We are trying to be different. We will not hurry you. If you visit us on your lunch break, then have one, you will be more productive in the afternoon. If you want to have a meeting, we will not disturb you. If you are ‘working from home’, we have wifi. If you have children, we have highchairs, a chest of toys, and milkshakes. We always have the daily papers, so please, relax, and share in what we are trying to create, take a load off, and have a cuppa.

Fire Festival 2016 Cancellation Statement

We are deeply saddened to announce that the Fire Festival Vauxhall will no longer be taking place this year. We have been ever so lucky with our funding over the last 3 years. Unfortunately, choices have to be made by Arts Council England and we were unlucky this time.

We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience and disappointment this might cause.

Looking to the future, we would like to put together the ‘Friends of the Vauxhall Trust CIC’ who would be able to help us build a fund for our festivals, so we can plan more strategically and hopefully avoid having to cancel any more in our 10 year plan. If you would like to be involved, please contact us on info@vauxhalltrust.org.

We are very much looking forward to the St George’s Festival, which will be taking place on 22nd and 23rd April next year.
