Kilburn’s compact answer to the Barbican comes in the shape of cinema-cum-theatre, the Tricycle. Aiming to be a one-stop shop for cultured north Londoners it also has an exhibition space that opens out into a vibrant café and a rolling bill of special events that includes Q&As, comedy and one-off shows. It is, of course, best known for its socially conscious theatre. Passionate and political, the Tricycle Theatre consistently finds original ways to tackle difficult subjects. In the last few years it has pioneered ‘tribunal’ docu-dramas – transcript-based plays that investigate subjects such as the murder of black teenager Stephen Lawrence, and Guantanamo Bay – and is justifiably proud of its verbatim and international theatre.
