Rosemary Branch Theatre
In contrast to its small size, the Rosemary Branch Theatre has a big history and reputation, starting life as a Victorian music hall that hosted such legendary names as Marie Lloyd and Charlie Chaplin.
In 1992, the popular pub, which is nestled on the border between Hackney and Islington, was taken over by artistic directors Cecilia Darker and Cleo Sylvestre, who refurbished the 67-seat venue and went on to win a string of theatre awards.
After more than 20 years of supporting emerging talent, the dynamic duo passed the artistic baton to a new generation of producers, interactive performance company Unattended Items. Audiences at The Rosemary Branch can now view anything from stand-up comedy to opera, spoken word to game shows.
Don't forget the Rosemary Branch is still also a popular local pub at heart, serving a wide range of food and drinks amid a friendly atmosphere.
