The Red Hedgehog is relative newcomer to London’s arts scene, a mini 100-seat concert hall and theatre in Highgate that opened in 2006. Throwing its slight weight about to great effect, the venue has welcomed a host of fine musicians to the stage including Peter Donohoe, Emma Kirkby and Burning Bush, as well as curating a good mix of theatre, children’s shows, exhibitions and youth drama workshops. It’s been doing so well, in fact, that founder Clare Fischer opened a second Red Hedgehog a 47-seat studio space next door in 2010, with a plan to produce more in-house works with a focus on the classics.

A lovely space and probably one of the friendliest in London. Took my little boy to a children's concert there and thought the way the concert was organised was very clever for that age group (6). I couldn't agree with the birthday party remark below. My 3 year old went to a friend's birthday party held there and it was an exceptional experience.


This venue also organise children's party. Why? the worst birthday party, the organiser had no a clue and extremely rude.

Our first visit, Peter Doahoe playing Beathoven opus 109,110,111, we were so mooved and spellbound by the playing and the closness of the music that my wife and I did not say a word for a full hour after the concert, we have talked of nothing else ever since. an unbelievably unexpected and wonderful experience.
