Award-winning Canal Café Theatre has been perched on the edge of the Regent’s Canal since the 70’s . It is a renowned comedy, cabaret and theatre venue and over the years has helped launch some of the biggest names in Comedy ranging from John Oliver to the League of Gentlemen to Miranda Hart. Other notable comedians to have trodden the boards of the Canal include Eddie Izzard, The Mighty Boosh, Catherine Tate and Dara O’Briain to name but a few. In 2002, an in-house production of Lucky Stiff made history by being the only Fringe Theatre production to be nominated in the Whatsonstage Awards for Best Musical Revival in the same category as the likes of Kiss Me Kate and My Fair Lady in the West End.

Home to Guinness World Record-Breaking NewsRevue and boasting a jam-packed programme of world-class theatre and comedy, this 60 seat theatre is based above the charming Bridge House Pub, which is perfect for pre and post show dining and drinks.

The box office and auditorium will open 10 minutes prior to the show start time. 

All our tickets are now digital. There is no need to print these tickets instead, please ensure you have the barcode and/or booking reference available on your phone or tablet.

Please contact mail@canalcafetheatre.com with any ticket or box office inquiries. One of our staff will then be in touch to assist you with your purchase. Please note, your tickets are not booked until a member of staff has taken payment.

If you think you’re going to be late, please contact the theatre ahead of time in order to arrange your arrival. 

It is always best to book to avoid disappointment, and as the seating is arranged by tables, even more so if you have a large group and want to sit together. If you would like to make a group booking, please contact the team on mail@canalcafetheatre.com.
