Upstairs At The GatehouseThis popular pub theatre in Highgate has, over the years, served as a music hall, cinema, Masonic lodge and a jazz and folk music club. Now Upstairs at the Gatehouse, housed in a refurbished 1895 auditorium, hosts theatrical and cabaret productions, presenting a mixture of off-beat and mainstream shows. The team behind the theatre is Ovation Theatres Limited whose directors, John and Katie Plews, have been in the business for over twenty years and are well known figures in Highgate circles. The pub that the theatre sits above, The Gatehouse, is one of the oldest in Highgate and there are claims that a licensed building has been on the site since 1337. Appropriately, the pub also has a long history of literary associations. Byron, Cruikshank and Dickens all used its services and the Highgate Literary and Scientific Institution's inaugural meeting took place in the pub on 16th January 1839.
