Climb a rickety old staircase and be transported into another world at this theatre hidden above a Kingsdown pub

The Wardrobe Theatre is located within a former storeroom above the White Bear pub on St Michael’s Hill in Kingsdown, deep in the heart of Bristol studentville. Indeed, shows by students make regular appearances here, but don’t let that put you off.

The themes here are anything theatre-makers want them to be, with the space available to be hired for free and then box office receipts split two ways between the production and its hosts. Tom Wainwright dressing up as a horse in 'Buttercup' was an unforgettable recent highlight. There are also up-and-coming comics in regular comedy nights and genre mash-ups, the latest of which saw the Muppets spliced with 'Die Hard'. A fortnightly improvisational soap opera, 'Closer Each Day', is another total one-off.

Open for less than four years, the Wardrobe is a culmination of the hard work of a group of young luvvies who all work here for free. What’s more, you’ll never have to pay more than a fiver to see a show.
