Tea House Theatre

Winner of Time Out Love London Awards 2014, 2016 & 2018!

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.

mackerel, served with mixed leaves and balsamic vinaigrette.

There Will Be Blood: Writing Violence

Guest writer: William Ryan

Writing violence in fiction can be a dangerous pursuit. If it’s done well, the rhythm, vocabulary and pace work in service to plot, suspense, setting and characterisation.

If it’s done badly, things can get very messy indeed. Join us in conversation with crime and historical novelist, William Ryan, as we explore the blood spattered perils and pitfalls of writing violence and crime.

You should leave tonight’s salon with some fresh ideas on how to execute dark deeds on the page.

Outdoor Concert

Wartime: Before, During and After

The Bloomsbury Quartet present a programme featuring music inextricably linked with times of war. During a trip to Switzerland and just before the outbreak of The Great War, Stravinsky wrote Three Pieces for String Quartet. A century earlier Beethoven was living in Vienna when the city was invaded by Napoleon - characteristically he complained bitterly about how loud the bombing was. His String Quartet No.11 was composed shortly after. And in 1945, Benjamin Britten and Yehudi Menuhin went to Germany to perform to concentration camp survivors. On their return Britten composed his String Quartet No.2.

Ludwig van Beethoven String Quartet No. 11 in F minor Op. 95 Igor Stravinsky Three Pieces for String Quartet (1914)

Benjamin Britten String Quartet No. 2 in C major Op. 36

Visit The Bloomsbury Quartet here

Bar will be open from 6pm!

Rainbow Heart

Life is never quite as straight as it seems...

Rainbow Heart is an original one-woman musical show about coming out and the search for identity.

What happens when you tumble out of the closet and find yourself trying to work out exactly where you are on the gender and sexuality spectrum? Rainbow Heart, the new one-woman musical show from The Bleeding Obvious endeavours to describe the experience through songs and tales of joy, grief, happiness, loss and defiance.

Touring the UK in 2018, it's been referred to as "hilarious", "thoughtful" and "astounding". With catchy songs and stories to make you giggle, let The Bleeding Obvious take you on a rollercoaster rainbow ride...

With spoken word support from special guests Geneviève L Walsh ("punk-song length poems about alienation, inebriation, pop music, and losers finding each other") and The Thinking Chimp ("dark, surreal, strange, insightful, edgy, with a squeeze of sarcasm and a large squirt of humour").

Writing Relationships: Love and Other Bruises

Guest writer: Julie Cohen

How do we write with truth, humour and clarity about human relationships; falling in and out of love, passion, friendship, emotion and heartbreak?

In this salon with best-selling author and writing teacher Julie Cohen we’ll explore ways to write about the ties that bind us, the secrets that threaten to destroy us and everything in between.

You should leave this salon with new ways to add depth to your characters and strengthen the human relationships in your writing.
