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.

Another writing salon at the Tea House Theatre.

Voice: The Writer’s Palette

Guest writer: Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott

A strong voice gives prose a recognisable quality that casts a lasting impression on the reader.

Mood and emotion are created through the command of voice and tone, while hints of gossip or slander can add vibrancy and colour to the fiction writer’s palette.

Our guest tonight Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott uses these techniques to great effect in her novel, Swan Song, the story of Truman Capote and the betrayal of his High Society ‘swans’, published to much acclaim in 2018 and recently long-listed for the 2019 Women’s Prize for Fiction.

A screenwriter as well as a novelist, Kelleigh will be joining us to discuss ways to use voice to develop character and story.
