The roots of The Albany date back to 1899 when it was founded to encourage wellbeing in the poverty-ridden Deptford community. The 1970s saw the institute host theatre and music before a fire put paid to its artistic efforts. The Albany you see today was rebuilt in 1982 and, as a performing arts centre, has hosted a mix of theatre, music, comedy, spoken word and dance ever since. It continues to be rooted in the community with diverse, often participatory programming.

We Raise Our Hands In The Sanctuary
This dance-soaked show by Inky Cloak is a story of two black gay teenagers in London's 1980s disco scene. As clubs close down, it celebrates the power of underground queer spaces and the friendships that fill them.Experimental Tuesday January 31 2017 - Saturday February 11 2017

The most welcoming venue in London, where all kinds of communities come to have conversations and share stories.
The Albany shows an assortment of offerings from spoken word right to children shows. It has a lively atmosphere and the inside cafe and bar is the best place to visit either before, during or after a show.
