Lovely setting, near Tower Bridge. Took a friend and their daughter for a free showing of “Around the World In 80 Days”.
The cast were funny, great costumes and clever props.
Of course it rained a bit, but everyone sat tight and the cast carried on. There were lots of umbrellas lying around for everyone to use.
Highly recommend for a bit of fun in the summer, especially if you have children.
A trip to scoop on a summer evening has become part of our annual routine – take a cushion, a great picnic and a few bottles to be the envy of those sat around you. If the weather holds then this is a fantastic spot for some free outdoor theatre. With a backdrop of Tower Bridge and the Thames behind and the rising Shard at London Bridge its in a perfect spot. Be warned can cool quickly with the chill coming off the Thames if the breeze picks up.

My new favourite place. The Scoop is right next to City Hall (Boris’s joint) and is an amphitheatre with stone seating (cushions available) very similar to Grecian style. It is so beautiful with Tower Bridge within view and the Tower of London right across the river. It is a good fun place. The piece on at the moment is Blood Wedding by Lorca and it is a big production with some beautiful music by Joe Fredericks, dancing and some real Greek style acting. There is a Barbecue and bar - but the most important thing is - the shows are FREE! So you can just troll along there and become part of a great experience and all for nothing.
You’d wouldn’t be blamed for wandering past this “space” and not realising the talent that arises from it when there are no performances on. I’m not sure whether you would class it a theatre or a performance space. It is located on the Southbank directly in front of the river and in the summer offers free entertainment. It’s very basic amenities include stone, levelled steps in which to sit for either a few minutes or hours, the choice is yours. The actual stage area is in the centre so that you are actually looking down at it. Entertainment can range from plays to music performances so will cater for all tastes. A great little spot in which to rest your weary feet and be entertained for free in a prime location. What more can you ask for?
