Our history

In 1949 a Mr. E.J. Bunn organised a group of fellow East Barnet Royal British Legion members into a concert party to put on shows and pantomimes to raise money for needy ex-servicemen and their families.

The group called themselves "Bunny's Warren" and "Bunny" produced the first pantomime "Dick Whittington" in St. James' Hall, New Barnet in January 1950 from which a very worthwhile sum of 43 was raised for the British Legion's Not Forgotten Fund.

In 1981 we decided to branch out on our own, thus enabling the proceeds of
the charity to be donated not only to the Not Forgotten Fund, but also to other local charities.

Up until 1991 we performed our annual pantomime at the Church House Hall
in Cockfosters.

However, 1992 saw The Warren move to a 'real theatre', when we performed "Frankenstein the Pantomime" at the Intimate Theatre in Palmers Green.

More recently still we have moved to The Bull Theatre in Barnet which is a lovely, intimate theatre where the audiences feel really close to the action and the seating allows everyone to see and hear everything happening on the stage. They have a bar, wheelchair access and there's plenty of parking behind the theatre.
