Best Bits

Something unique is occurring in the courtyard of the historic Battersea Arts Centre building – something extravagant perhaps, with a twist of something extra... 

Be transported back to Victorian London with a whirlwind of plot twists, mischief and live music in the raucous Extravaganza Macabre which returns to Battersea Arts Centre's open-air courtyard theatre this July. A story of cruel fate and hapless chance, where two passionate lovers are parted by a freak storm, Extravaganza Macabre will have you howling with laughter...

  • Will the lovers be reunited or will the scheming villain have his wicked way?
  • A tale of unbearably high stakes, unspeakable moral lows and lashing of devilish over-the-toppery...
  • Make the most of a summer evening with this open-air experience
  • Feel part of the action with Stall Seats which are right in front of the stage
  • Battersea Arts Centre's Scratch Bar was awarded Best Theatre Bar in SW London in 2014, 2015 & 2016 - grab a bite for lunch or afternoon tea, or enjoy an alfresco Great British Picnic, which features delicious homemade British classics, including pork pies!


'Delightful. Packed with plot twists, humour and original songs' ★★★★  The Times 

'Real joy. Utterly fresh, bright and new'  ★★★★ TimeOut 

'Staged with energy and warmth' ★★★★  The Stage
