With fantastic transport links, situated right next to Finsbury Park Station, this is a vibrant and welcoming, friendly theatre, with cafe/bar on both the ground and first floor and good mobility access to all floors. There are 3 theatres within the building: a 200 seat, a 90 seat and StudioTheatres. It has immersed itself in its local community and offers events and a variety of courses and workshops for all ages and abilities, coached by very professional and supportive staff. There are some very good productions here,performed in the comparatively intimate setting of their theatres, some attracting international stars. Ticket prices are very affordable. A welcome asset to an area that is definitely on the up.
Saw brainstorm and a night with Jimmy saville this year, brilliant venue, great space, quirky and cool.
Award-winning programming, and a really lovely atmosphere in the bar and cafe areas - what's not to love?
an absolute gem! I've seen 4 productions here, all first rate, excellent cast, staging, direction etc and at a more reasonable ticket price than the west end
