Great value theatre for performances, conferences, events, school shows and more.

Our 238-seat theatre is a lovely intimate space, without a bad seat in the house. You will receive full professional support from a technician and ushers, and back stage facilities.

Many schools, societies, charities, conferences and touring companies regularly hire the space and we think you will find us great value in a unique riverside setting.

Our theatre foyer has a balcony overlooking the River Thames, a licensed bar which will serve pre-show and interval drinks, and a restaurant The Guru Tandoori Kitchen serving great value, freshly prepared Indian food and bar snacks.

We are in Brentford, West London and are very well served by public transport as well as having an on-site car park.

Rail: nearest are Kew Bridge or Brentford (5-10 min walk)
Bus: several buses stop right outside, running from Richmond and Gunnersbury stations (5-10 min depeneding on traffic).
