Outer London

North London's most vibrant theatre

A vibrant one-stop-shop for culture in north London, the Tricycle packs a lot into its medium-sized frame: bar, kitchen, cinema and of course a theatre. Long run by Nicolas Kent, whose tenure was marked by pioneering work in the field of verbatim theatre, the current artistic director is Indhu Rubasingham, who maintains a diverse but socially conscious programme.

The venue found itself the centre of a national controversy in 2014 after refusing to host that year's Jewish Film Festival so long as it received funding from the Israeli government (then engaged in a bloody conflict on the Gaza Strip). However, matters appear to have been smoothed over, and Rubasingham's tenure has largely been popular and successful.

After decades of frequenting the Tricycle theatre, I cannot in good conscience continue to do so and I will not renew my membership.  As a Jewish woman, I now find myself totally unwelcome in this independent Arts Venue.  The reason for this is the very recent boycott of the UK Jewish Film Festival.  The UK Jewish Film Festival is totally apolitical.  By demanding that they actively reject funding from the Israeli Embassy, the Tricycle has pushed them into a corner, a Catch 22 if you like, and demanded that they either become political, or they are not welcome in the establishment. This is deeply unfair and was only ever going to end one way.
