Bloomsbury Spotlight is a programme of large and exciting theatre productions by a wide range of UCL Arts and Cultural societies. It is a unique opportunity for UCL students to train, produce and perform in high quality productions at UCL’s Bloomsbury Theatre. The line up for our Term 2 shows are coming up so stay tuned to see what other students will be performing. 

 We will gradually add more performances and tickets for Term 3 as well.
