The Lions Part
the Lions part is a theatre company. We are made up of 7 like-minded professional performers who collaborate to create seasonal festivals, plays and theatre pieces that transform public and community spaces with a fusion of stories, playtexts, music, customs and heritage.
We are most famous for our FREE annual Bankside Festivals- October Plenty on Apple Day in October and Twelfth Night in early January. Ocotber Plenty is a collaboration between us and hte famous Borough Market and celebrates the wonder of the English Apple.
The Lions part are also the originators of the devised theatre piece, Lilies on the Land that played in the West End in 2010 and toured nationally to great critical acclaim. Lilies is the Lions part's first published script and is available from Nick Hern Books.
