Albany Theatre

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.

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.


Brilliant local venue with a global vision. Catch a show, many ideal for families, or even just grab a coffee or snack in the excellent cafe. It's right in the middle of Deptford Market, so plenty of bargains to be had outside too. A jewel in the neighbourhood.
