Jacksons Lane

Jacksons Lane is all about the experimental arts and its heritage speaks for itself. Matt Lucas and David Walliams performed their first ever double-act show here, and companies such as Complicite and Shared Experience have found a platform at the Highgate venue. Housed in a gothic red-brick building that was once a church, this arts venue seats 160 in the theatre, has a cafe and bar, as well as four other spaces that are available to hire.

Spent my teenage years here doing a Saturday morning drama club, great facilities, flexible space and good cafe. Not a bad place to vote either.


Jacksons Lane feels like a tucked-away gem in Highgate near the Parkland Walk. Prices are affordable, and shows are surprising and interesting. And the theatre is small, making this a great intimate space for theatre.

Jacksons Lane has a wonderful programme of circus, family show and cabaret. I love how they are always pushing the boundaries of contemporary circus/theatre, and the work they do to support up and coming artists.
