We’ve come a long way in nine years; from the original Bakehouse kitchen table to a multi-award winning theatrical production company specialising in delivering immersive and interactive events. From our large multi-disciplinary HQ in Bristol, our skilled team of client, logistics, production and design managers cook up a range of magical theatrical experiences for both UK and international clients. Over the years we have secured access to all of the ingredients we need to create unexpected moments of pop-up joy. We rise to every new challenge and collaboration and as a result our business is thriving.
Last year alone over 300,000 people took part in over 500 Bakehouse shows in 40+ towns and cities across the UK and beyond, showcasing our work to millions.
What we believe
Our mission is to create unexpected moments of delight and wonder, delivering meaningful connections between performers and audiences. We bring people together through story and play in new environments, making memories and engaging imaginations. We work with a variety of clients including brands, retailers, public sector and cultural organisations, with a wide variety of audiences, often people who don’t engage with traditional theatre. We are a company that great performers and makers want to work with. We deliver to campaign objectives, always with some added Bakehouse magic, leaving audiences, and clients, feeling positive.
Meet the bakers
We have a network of hundreds of skilled craftsmen, performers, puppeteers, costumiers and event managers, that help us to deliver delightful off-the-shelf events and bespoke creations.
