Cockpit TheatreA vibrant fringe theatre in Marylebone, the Cockpit Theatre was designed by Edward Mendelsohn and built in 1969-70. Notable as London's first purpose-built theatre in-the-round since the Great Fire of London - the auditorium can seat up to 220 in this configuration - it's now part of the City of Westminster College. It stages international plays, classic works, home-grown provocative theatre, monthly children and family shows and hosts the annual Camden Fringe festival.
