Awards and Recognition

Awards and recognition for the Garden Theatre and

Peter Bull for LAMBCO Productions

“If you want to see the future of acting, head to The Eagle pub in Vauxhall. This wonderful show succeeded in making me forget I was sitting in a rainy Vauxhall pub on a weekday evening. For 90 glorious minutes I was whisked away to the heart of glamorous Manhattan.”

Lloyd Evans, The Spectator

 Renowned critic Lyn Gardner has this to say about the Garden Theatre:

OffWestEnd – the organisation in London which supports, promotes and celebratse independent, alternative and fringe theatre across Greater London – has awarded the Garden Theatre and its productions on numerous occasions

Following Assessor visits to the Garden Theatre, as a direct result of what had been achieved in times of lockdown, the OFFIEs tweeted: “The OFFIEs are pleased to announce new #ONEOFF award to recognise the innovation & resilience of independent, fringe & alternative venues, companies, festivals & others in these difficult times. Tweets follow with details of first winners.”


FANNY AND STELLA was the 1st musical to open the Garden Theatre. At the time, between the powerhouses of the West End and Broadway, FANNY AND STELLA was the only musical running.

1st #ONEOFF celebrates the first live “offwestend” prodn since lockdown began in March 2020. Against many odds, LAMBCO @LAMBCO_Prods @Peter_Bull_ opened “Fanny & Stella” at Eagle Garden Theatre @eaglelondon on 3 Aug 2020 – congrats to the producers, venue and all the cast & crew!

London Pub Theatre awarde the Garden Theatre a Standing Ovation Award
#StandingOvationNom PIPPIN The Garden Theatre @eaglelondon Incredibly talented team of actors who made the small backyard space of The Eagle feel like a West End stage. This was a joyous interpretation of a popular musical when we all desperately need some joy in our lives!


GRADFEST was setup as an organisation to support recent graduates who didn’t get a chance to Showcase their talents. Peter Bull for LAMBCO Productions worked in conjunction with GRADFEST to produce the Gradfest Showcase at the Garden Theatre.

The OFFIEs have awarded an ONE OFFIE SPECIAL AWARD to Gradfest for this outstanding venture.


The Third Musical at the Garden Theatre produced by Peter Bull for LAMBCO Productions.

 “This wonderful show made me forget I was sitting in a rainy Vauxhall pub on a weekday evening” The Spectator

The OFFIEs again nominated: Best Supporting Performance in a Musical.

★★★★★ very strong ensemble opening number immediately captivated and prepared the audience for a fast-paced, toe-tapping, finger-clicking musical…. rousing ballads and high emotionally led dramatic lyrics…. under Robert McWhir’s very tight direction…. beautifully played out and with a rousing rendition of the show’s title number is delightfully wrapped up” BOYZ Magazine


★★★★ “Terrific talent really takes charming musical, ‘Next Thing You Know’ to a higher level. An entertaining and intelligent little gem of a show. The cast are all straight out of drama school, but based on this offering we predict a stellar career for all of them.”

London Living Large

“A wonderful, entertaining night out, packed with superb lyrical numbers and sung with a quality and confidence you’d expect from more experienced performers – the cast shone.”

Southwark News

★★★★ ‘Next Thing you Know’

“A thoroughly enjoyable night of much-needed escapism that had me humming the title song the whole way home”

“Again the Garden Theatre at @eaglelondon shows the way to larger producers – back in August it was how to put on a show with the delightful Fanny and Stella and then a stripped back Pippin and now how to give hope to young performers” Theatre Vibe

‘Next Thing You Know’

#5 in GQ’s 10 Coolest Things To Do in London This Week





“an entertainingly camp, but clever, 70 mins where six brave souls perform this hilarious musical revue that had originally found success in America, running off Broadway for over 12 years…. surprisingly impressive and highly entertaining show…. a celebration of the male form in all it’s shapes, sizes and angles…. impressively tight harmonies…. an amazing tonic that doesn’t take itself too seriously…. there’s nothing quite like the sight of 6 naked (and talented) men to take your mind off the more serious issues of the day, and I hope I will have the chance to recommend this show once again as a way to bring that feel-good factor back into your lives” Jack the Lad Magazine

5 Stars

★★★★★ “Witty, performed with dash and style, and the tonic one needs these dismal days. The athletic choreography devised by their director is stunning, and they can all sing. Camp, but clever, it contains nothing that would cause Aunt Edna to blush, and deserves to run and run” ReviewsGate

★★★★ “It’s great fun and I left the theatre with a smile on my face” London Theatre1
