Support Matt to run the London Marathon!

Our Treasurer Matthew Craig is running the London Marathon for the Blue Elephant on April 23rd!

He's battling a dodgy achilles' tendon all in the name of supporting Blue Elephant as we face into a tough year financially. We still have 30% of our core costs to raise for the next year so all support is hugely appreciated!

Where to find us

The small venue, the Blue Elephant Theatre, off Camberwell Road in South London SE5, is charming. Well worth a visit. The Epoch Times


Blue Elephant Theatre
59a Bethwin Rd
(entrance in Thompson's Ave)

Parking and Access

The nearest designated parking area for blue badge holders is on Bethwin Road, approximately 35 meters from the main theatre entrance. The route involves crossing the road and there are no adjacent dropped kerbs up to the pavement level.

The closest parking bays to the theatre are on Thompson Avenue adjacent to cycle racks. These are not blue badge bays but are on the same pavement side as the theatre. <strong>Please note in November 2017, Southwark Council is repairing footpaths outside our building and parking may be restricted for this reason</strong>

If you have questions or concerns about access to the theatre, please call 020 7701 0100 to discuss your requirements.
