Theatre Hire

Contact us about hiring the White Bear

We normally programme three or four week runs (Tuesday – Saturday at 7.30pm and Sunday matinee at 4.00pm), but also offer one week ‘try out’ runs. We also give Sunday and Monday slots, which can run consecutively over two or three weeks if required.

The White Bear has a very competitive hire fee and in some cases will consider a box office split.

One of the key advantages of the White Bear for audiences and businesses alike is that it is merely a two minute walk from Kennington tube station, which is just one stop from Waterloo on the Northern line. On top of this, there are parking spaces available outside the venue.

Tickets will be sold via The White Bear Box Office Line and 24 hour booking is also available at
