About Us

The Nursery has been bringing improv to Londoners for almost a decade. We run regular shows and classes, as well as offering space hire and bespoke training.

Last year we opened a brand new, purpose-built improv theatre, The Nursery Theatre at Broadgate. Our programme includes shows every Friday and Saturday, developing acts and jams on Thursday (Thursday Night Lights) and Sundays (The Carousel), a free monthly development workshop and additional shows on an ad-hoc basis, plus our in-house Nursery Originals programme, and our annual week-long international improv festival Slapdash in October. The theatre has its own private bar and comfy seats and it’s a great place to come along and watch a huge variety of improv styles in a relaxed, friendly environment.

Our Training Centre runs flexible classes that are aimed at all levels: from a free monthly taster session and two weekly drop-ins, to a number of longer courses, one-off electives, and workshops with guest teachers for experienced improvisers to hone specific skills. The Training Centre also offers five rehearsal spaces for hire.
