“ I am so delighted we have the opportunity to expand The Theatre Café. The industry and fans have taken this café to their heart, supported us and now we can give them all a bigger space to bring the theatre community together. We aim to make theatre more accessible to the public, which lies at the heart of why we are passionate about progressing this place. I am so proud to lead this company of dedicated staff and owners who all share that goal. ”
The Theatre Café’s first location on Shaftesbury Avenue, which opened in 2015, has achieved exceptional success, with the last year seeing a huge upturn in the recognition of the brand worldwide. The café is a hub for theatre fans, with theatrical memorabilia adorning the walls and showtunes played throughout the day.
With a large, dedicated social media following and support from industry professionals, The Theatre Café has also become a go-to for theatre fans that are looking for the latest theatre news alongside fun and innovative content.
The Theatre Café recently announced a partnership with Waitress the Musical to provide pies for the West End production from a purpose-built bakery in the heart of the West End,further strengthening its profile among theatre fans.
The Theatre Café is operated by London Theatre Bookings, London’s largest independent ticket agent.
The Shaftesbury Avenue site will continue to operate as a ‘grab and go’ coffee shop, being rebranded as The Theatre Café Expresso.
