Every word counts

Bartholomew Fair


It may have been shut down by the authorities nearly 200 years ago, but this summer we’re re-opening the doors to the most notorious fair in town. The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse will be totally transformed as we celebrate the kaleidoscope of contemporary London life in Ben Jonson’s dazzling comedy.

Expect an excess of drink, a distinct lack of morals and a whole heap of sin amongst the fair’s resident butchers, pimps and pickpockets.

Come on in for all your dark, depraved and dishonourable needs. Just don’t expect to go unnoticed…
