The award-winning Above The Stag Theatre is the only full-time professional LGBT theatre company in the UK. The theatre focuses on LGBT-themed shows, including some original productions.
The venue s relatively small, so shows are often sold out weeks in advance. Details of current and performances are available on the Above The Stag’s website. Tickets can also be booked online.
The theatre has a fully stocked bar that is open one hour before and after performances as well as during intervals. You can take drinks into the theatre.
We here at Travel Gay Europe are big fans of Above The Stag and highly recommend it as an great alternative gay night out.
Consider combining with a pre-show dinner at nearby Counter, who offer a dedicated Above The Stag menu (£16 for two courses or £20 for three courses) including a glass of Prosecco.
