This past October, Round House returned to London for our annual Theatre Tour, following a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic. There was so much interest for this year’s London Tour we added a second week to accommodate the demand!
Over two weeks, two separate groups of Round House Trustees, donors, and patrons enjoyed the best of London theatre, top restaurants, and special behind-the-scenes interviews and tours, along with the beloved post-show group conversations led by Artistic Director Ryan Rilette and Managing Director Ed Zakreski. We returned to the Sea Containers hotel following our last trip in 2019 and enjoyed beautiful views of the River Thames from the posh, private apartment reserved for our evening gatherings.
Both tours alternated between West End theatres and those on the South Bank. To kick off each week, Guardian theatre critics Arifa Akbar and Michael Billington, respectively, joined the group to discuss the shows we were seeing and the state of London theatre. We saw a different show each night, Tuesday – Saturday, with delicious meals before each one. And of course, what would a trip to London be without afternoon tea!
The 2023 London Tour will take place October 24-28, 2023. For more information, please contact Amy Benson, Executive Assistant and Board Liaison, at ABenson@RoundHouseTheatre.org.
