London is the best possible city for training actors and technical theatre artists and the world outside the rehearsal room undoubtedly plays as important a part in shaping students as the work within. The world’s finest theatres, galleries, clubs and gig venues are within reach, with the Bridge Theatre, the National Theatre, the Young Vic, the Old Vic and the Unicorn theatre all in Southwark alone.
Mountview’s new home, Peckham, is the epicentre of multicultural cool, with record shops and street food markets, rooftop bars and basement clubs, as well as pop-up galleries and arts venues round every corner. The rich history of this pocket of south London is inspiring and energising.
Here’s an overview of some of the things that happen in the area. Keep your eye out during Induction Week for special discounts and promotions for Mountview students.
