A local theatre with a national profile

Back in the public realm for its residents. Currently being magnificently restored so it can return as a cultural hub in the heart of its community. Ticket discounts and priority booking for local people. Community and education programmes. Heritage tours and access to space. Working with local schools and colleges. Youth theatre, career days and creating local jobs. A driver for regeneration and the local economy.

World class entertainment and the finest comedy venue in the UK. The acclaimed Soho Theatre bringing you the hottest talent and the biggest international stars. Comedy that will make you laugh, and maybe even change the way you see the world. Plus theatre, performance, music and panto too. Connecting with all ages and for everyone. A new theatre, building on Waltham Forest’s year as the first ever London Borough of Culture.

When it opens it will be two decades since the venue closed. A grassroots campaign by locals to retain the building as an entertainment venue ensued, a campaign Soho Theatre joined 12 years ago. Soho Theatre helped the campaigners give shape and vision to what the venue could be and together  they presented it to Waltham Forest Council: comedy, panto, screenings, opportunities to get involved, a local theatre with a national profile. Purchased by Waltham Forest Council in 2019, it will be operated by Soho Theatre.
