Shipwright

Introducing the new riverside outdoor theatre hidden away in the historic grounds of the master Shipwright’s house on the banks of the Thames in Deptford. This atmospheric venue will allow audiences to enter the grounds and watch a vibrant programme of arts this summer in the garden of this unique house. A festival of theatre, music and cabaret awaits.

This unusual, intimate setting will seat just 200 visitors to enjoy performances by the river. Lunch and dinner will be on offer from Deptford’s much-loved restauranteurs, Klose & Soan, along with a bar stocked full of locally sourced craft beers. Tickets are available from just £10 and are on sale now.

Highlights for this summer will include: The UK performance premiere of Maggie Nelson’s ‘The Argonauts’, new plays ‘Dig’ by Chris New and ‘I…’ by Asa Haynes, cabaret from Diane Chorley’s ‘Down the Flick’, Baby Lame’s ‘Riot!’ and The Nightbus presents ‘Drag Queen Story Time’, music from Time Mead and Sergio Bucheli, Shunaji, Maxwell Quartet, Lucy Crowe, Messiean’s ‘Quartet For The End Of Time’, Rosie Lowe, Rory Butler and Christy.

Shipwright Artistic Director, Joseph Winters, introduces the summer festival: “Here’s the big idea: audiences and performers alike come to the theatre, to gigs, to cabaret, in order to feel at home. It is with enormous excitement that we announce Shipwright’s first summer festival: three weekends of entertainment in the heart of Deptford. We welcome theatrical world premieres, riotous nights of cabaret and some of the most acclaimed live musicians to delight audiences with a truly diverse programme of great nights out, with arts, food and drink all in one unique venue. Our outdoor space is like nowhere else: from their seats audiences can see and hear the Thames lapping against the auditorium’s edge.’
