Battersea Arts Centre (BAC)Carrying many of London's best fringe productions, the Battersea Arts Centre is one of the best off-West End theatres and art venues in the capital. A Grade II-listed building which was the former town hall, the BAC is now one of the country's biggest arts centres, housing studios and gallery space as well as a theatre. With a reputation for producing innovative and exciting new work, this well-loved Lavender Hill landmark has played host to everything from stand-up comedy to opera.
