Home to powerful new plays and our biggest acts, our Theatre is available for day hire.*

 

When we’re not in rehearsal for our next big production our Theatre has played host to all manner of events. Showcases, TV run-throughs, conferences, press launches, lectures, awards ceremonies, workshops, company meetings and more.

Available for hire from 9am until 6pm, Monday to Saturday, the theatre is an end-on black box theatre with a raked auditorium. The stage will quite often have a theatrical set in place, adding a unique aspect to any event.

Room size: 15 × 10 metres
Stage size: varies with layout and set, usually 10 × 6.5 metres
Capacity: 155, raked, fixed bench seating sloping down to a flat floor stage (dependent on set) with side balconies
Access: there is lift and level access to the stage

Price: £220 per hour + VAT (minimum 3 hours)
A Technician, Duty Manager and Front of House staff are included with your booking

*The Theatre is currently unavailable for hires until August 2018. Please take a look at our other venues –  Soho Upstairs and Soho Downstairs

 

 

Additional equipment or services are available on request. Please speak to our Operations & Hires Administrator, as costs may apply.

  • Yamaha keyboard and amp (full-size, weighted keys, sustain pedal)
  • Screen and projector
  • Standing mics and lapel mics
  • A range of catering services are available from our bar

Of course, theatrical sets can affect the functionality of the space. And if this is the case, we’ll forward through set plans and photos as soon as they become available. We assess the safety of each set very carefully and will let you know if we have any concerns.

The adjacent dressing rooms do not usually form part of hires. As an alternative dressing room / break out space, our Seminar Room on the 3rd floor can be booked when a performance space is booked.

Unfortunately we’re unable to offer Box Office services and promotional services as part of hires.
